"You who desire to be under the law..."
Text: Galatians 4:21
DESIROUS TO BE UNDER THE LAW
The Judaizers had done a deadly work in the hearts and minds of the Galatians. They managed to make the Galatians feel that that they must be desirous of keeping the law (for justification). Paul once again took the opportunity to raise questions about the place of the law.
Tell me, you who desire to be under the law,
do you not hear the law?
For it is written that Abraham had two sons:
the one by a bondwoman, the other by a freewoman.
But he who was of the bondwoman was born according to the
flesh, and he of the freewoman through promise.
