Those foolish, bewitched Galatians! They got things all scrambled in their heads. The miracles that were worked among them--even their very life with Jesus--were Spirit-driven and enabled. But now, they strove to maintain their standing with God through their own perfectly-keeping-the-Law efforts. It's almost as though they were saying to God, "Thanks for the push to get me going, but I got this now!"
Perfect Law keeping is not possible. Trying is death. It leads to the Curse.
On the other hand, Jesus bore the Curse; released all from it who are "of faith." But, He still holds all under it who are "of works."
Remember the Promise! It came half a millennia before the Law. Which should have preeminence?
So, why did God use angels to ordain the Law? What was its purpose? What were its limits?
