In Galatians 3:23 it says;

Now before faith came, we were held captive under the law, imprisoned until the coming faith would be revealed.
Galatians 3:23 ESV

When it says ‘…held captive under the law…’, this is referring to fallen man being ‘imprisoned’ and in slavery to their sinful desires (ref. Romans 6:20) in their natural state, not able to satisfy the righteous requirement of the law – which is to do all commandments in order to obtain everlasting life, and not be ‘cursed’;

‘…“Cursed be everyone who does not abide by all things written in the Book of the Law, and do them.”’
(Galatians 3:10 ESV)
[ref. Deut 27:27, 28:1, 28:15, amongst other verses]


For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it.
James 2:10 NIV

When it then goes on and says ‘…imprisoned until the coming faith would be revealed….’, this then shows us that what is of great value is the believing by faith that God raised His Son the Lord Jesus Christ from the dead – as this faith allows for a person to be born again;

Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.
John 3:3 NIV

And if one is believing in Christ this means;

‘…you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
Galatians 5:18 NIV

Rather, they diligently;

‘…uphold the law.’
(Romans 3:31 ESV)

believing for grace;

‘“But we believe that we are saved through the grace of the Lord Jesus…’
(Acts 15:11 NASB)

‘“And I will pour out… a spirit of grace and pleas for mercy, so that, when they look on me, on him whom they have pierced, they shall mourn for him, as one mourns for an only child, and weep bitterly over him, as one weeps over a firstborn.’
(Zechariah 12:10 KJV)

May the Holy G-d of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; bless you with a beyond maximum increase, believing in His risen Son the Lord Jesus Christ (Adonai Yehoshua HaMoshiach). Omayn (Amen).
