Galatians 3:24

Therefore the Law has become our tutor to lead us to Christ, so that we might be justified by faith. Galatians 3:24

If the Law is the tutor then we are no longer under the Law as verse 25 states.

The Law referred to here is the whole 613 Laws in the mosaic covenant given to Israel after the Exodus.

If this is the Law the sabbath is not binding on the church.

Now that faith has come, you are all united in Christ; Gal 3:25-29 The Living Stone Chosen by God, 1 Peter 2:4-6

For indeed we have had the good news of salvation preached to us, as they did; but the word they heard did not benefit them,
because they were not united in faith, in Christ. Heb 4:2
If this is the Law the sabbath is not binding on the church.
“The Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath.” Luke 6:5

Where in the bible does it say that the law is split between the moral and ceremonial law?
That, effectively, is the question that I am asking though more closely related to the wording of your post.

What is it about the Galatians message that indicates that it is referring to all 613 mitzvah?

Can you respond in the context and content of the question in my post?

Where in that verse does it not say the moral law is involved in it. If this does refer to the moral law would you agree that the sabbath is not binding on the church. There is nowhere in scripture that separates the Law, the 10 and the other 603 are one unit.

Greetings Christian SDA,
What tells us that the law referred to in verse 24
Christ is the True Sabbath Matthew 11:25-30, Hebrews 4. We find our rest in him now and waiting for the Kingdom of God, the rest of the 1000 years, the 7th period of 1000 years when Jesus will return and establish the Kingdom of God upon the earth. If we seek to be his disciples we will obey his commandments, but the Sabbath Law is not one of these.

Kind regards
Trevor

I’m not looking for someplace in scripture that separates anything.

I’m looking to address the content and context that identifies “the Law” to which Galatians 3 refers.
  1. Galatians 3:2 what works of what “law”?
  2. Galatians 3:5 what works of what “law”?
  3. Galatians 3:10 what works of what “law”? What is written in the Book of the Law?
  4. Galatians 3:11 which law does not justify?
  5. Galatians 3:12 which law is not of faith?
  6. Galatians 3:13 which law has a curse?
  7. Galatians 3:17 which law was also a covenant?
  8. Galatians 3:19. Which law was added because of transgressions?
  9. Galatians 3:21 which law does not give Life?
  10. Galatians 3:24 which law was our school master
There is only one answer to all of those questions - the 613 mitzvah of the Decalogue/Covenant from Sinai.

True but peripheral to the subject of the opening post. Thank you.

Good answer, this topic only went to the “separation” of the law because you brought it up. So if Galations 3:24 is referring to the whole 613 then the sabbath is not binding on the church?

Christians live under a better and different Covenant than the covenant from Sinai.

For the law is fulfilled in Christ as the means of righteousness (right relationship to God) for everyone who believes. Rom 10:4

Indeed.
For this reason Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance—Hebrews 9:15

So is the Sunday Law binding on the whole of Christ's church(Hint: Is it outside of the 613, Right?) ???

Up to and including a death penalty for breaking that law ???

Who did GOD give the death penalty as the result of sin to, for breaking Sunday ???

Yours in Christ, Michael

Moses gave you the law but none of you keep the law. John 7:19 [Prov 20:9; Eccl 7:20; Isa 53:6]

If the 4th commandment is part of the moral law it wouldn’t be binding?
