Those who are of faith are blessed, and are a blessing to the nations. Indeed, the life of faith (per Abraham) precedes the giving of the law (per Moses). The law points out our need for salvation, and Christ redeemed us from its penalties. But it is faith in Christ that allows us access to the salvation-gift. Paul demonstrates that God’s Promised Seed secures for us righteousness while the subsequent law unveils our need for a Savior.
