    Contributed on Jun 2, 2010

    Two Covenants Gal. 4:21-5:1 Introduction In this text Paul continues to contrast grace and law, faith and works. Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit he employs an Old Testament story as an analogy, which serves not so much as an argument as an illustration. Paul here doesn’t give us more
