Galatians ~Pt 5b ~ Promises of God v/s Works of the Law

Paul is passionate in getting his point across. We do not walk out our faith in Yeshua by following the Pharisaic/rabbinic Judaism. Instead, Paul is passionately telling us that we are to follow Yeshua’s Torah by the Holy Spirit.

Galatians 3:21 states: “Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law.”

The law he is referring to here is not the written Torah. The context is “works of the law”. We are not justified or made righteous by our works of the law. He is comparing and contrasting “works of the law” to the “promises of God” that are received by faith as seen in Abraham’s life. (Gal 3:14)
