April 5, 2020 ~ Galatians 3:10-14 “Christ and the Curse”

Virtually all agree that this paragraph is one of the most important in Galatians. It comes as no surprise, then, that it is also the subject of vigorous debate. Paul began this new segment of the letter by contending that the Galatians belong to God’s people because they have received the Spirit (3:1–5). He then turned to the OT (3:6–14) to defend the view that the Galatians are members of Abraham’s family.

The argument in 3:10–14 is closely joined to the previous paragraph (3:6–9). Paul has just finished an argument in which he contends that the family of Abraham has the faith of Abraham. More precisely, those who believe like Abraham participate in the blessing of Abraham. The promise that all nations will be blessed in Abraham (Gen 12:3) has now reached its fulfillment in the justification of Gentiles by faith. Just as Abraham was declared to be in the right before God by faith, so too Gentiles who put their faith in what God has done for them by the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ are in a right relation with God.
