Placed as Sons

The Placement of Sonship

Under Law Until the Time Appointed by the Father, Galatians 4:1, 2

Held in bondage to the elementary things of the world system, Galatians 4:3

God Sent His Son to Redeem those under Law, Galatians 4:4-7

Galatians 4:1-7

4.1 But I say upon as much time as the heir is an inarticulate babbler, he differs nothing from a slave, being lord of all, 4.2 but is under guardians and tutors, up until the time limit set by the father. 4.3 Thus we also, when we were inarticulate babblers, we being slaves were under the elementary principles of the world system. 4.4 But when the fullness of time came, God sent forth His Son, being born out from a woman, born under law, 4.5 in order that he should redeem the ones under the law, in order that we should receive the placement of sons. 4.6 And because we are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying “Abba, the Father”. 4.7 Therefore we are no longer slaves but sons, and since sons, also we are heirs of God through Christ.
