07) Kept under the guardianship of the pedagogue The Toga Praetexta vs the Toga Virilis (Galatians 3:22-4:11)

Eric PetermanEric Peterman, September 8, 2019
Part of the Galatians series, taught at a Sunday Morning service

Why settle for the limited existence of a child under a hard-nosed, every-watchful guardian-slave, a kind of nose-to-the grindstone whip-master, externally dictating and enforcing behavior and morals, when you're already a free adult and an heir to a great estate? Why wear the clothing of a kid who has no legal or civil rights, when your father has paid for the best suit of fitted clothes made for a grown man? Why be a slave when you are in fact the owner of a great estate?

Galatians 3:22-4:11

22But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe. 23But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. 24Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. 25But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. 26For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. 27For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. 29And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. 4:1 Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; 2But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father. 3Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world: 4But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, 5To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. 6And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. 7Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ. 8Howbeit then, when ye knew not God, ye did service unto them which by nature are no gods. 9But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage? 10Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years. 11I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain. (KJV)
