What did Paul mean when he said that we were under a “child minder” or “guardian” until faith came? And what does the phrase “under the Law” mean? Now that we are not “under the Law”, are we excused from obeying it? If I am led by the spirit, do I need to pay attention to and obey the Torah? This key section of Galatians found in 3:23 to 4:8 answers these questions and gets right to the heart of Paul’s message to the community in Galatia.
