Galatians 3:19-20 King James Version (KJV) 19 Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator. 20 Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one. Galatians 3:19-20 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB) The Purpose of the Law 19 Why then was the law given? It was added because of transgressions until the Seed to whom the promise was made would come. The law was put into effect through angels by means of a mediator. 20 Now a mediator is not for just one person, but God is one.

These are my thoughts please share yours. 19 The law was given so all could be forgiven by Christ after He came. The law was given to Moses who wrote it down for all to follow. The law was the law that the Jews in Moses' time followed. 20 Christ worked hand and hand with the Father as they are both God along with the Holy Spirit.
