Context Readings

Justified By The Law, Or Justified By Faith?

12 But the Law has nothing to do with faith. Instead, "The person who keeps the commandments will have life in them." 13 The Messiah redeemed us from the curse of the Law by becoming a curse for us. For it is written, "A curse on everyone who is hung on a tree!" 14 This happened in order that the blessing promised to Abraham would come to the gentiles through the Messiah Jesus, so that we might receive the promised Spirit through faith.
