23 But before faith came, we were held in custody under the Law, being shut up for the coming faith to be revealed.
24 Therefore the Law has become our tutor unto Christ, so that we may be justified by faith.
25 But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor.
26 For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.
27 For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.
28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
29 And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, heirs according to promise.
“In the plan of salvation, the law is the paidagogos that raised the Jews from childhood through adolescence. It was not a schoolmaster to teach them how to get better and better until God finally accepted them.” Dr. Philip Graham Ryken
