Welcome to episode 26 of the Grace Cafe Podcast. Let's take a closer look at Galatians and the temporary nature of the Law of Moses. Paul wrote in Galatians 3 that the Law was put in charge to lead us to Christ. Is the common interpretation, that the Law functions in our lives to bring us to faith in Christ, what he meant? A second look at the context may bring us to a different conclusion.
What if Paul wasn't talking about the Law functioning in such a way as to bring us to personal, individual faith at all? What if he was making a historical reference to Old Covenant Israel as those under the guardianship of the Law until Christ came, introducing a better covenant? What if the Law functioned as a temporary placeholder that was historically time bound? Let's talk about it.
