<167> Thesis: There is a critical need for us to understand what the Law is and why it was "ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator". Introduction: Because the difficulty of relating to God by faith is a perennial problem for men, we have an enormous need for clarity in understanding what "Law" is and why it was put in place over 400 years after God gave the inheritance to Abraham by promise. For this cause, the apostle Paul launched immediately into the answers to these questions as soon as he had made "relating to God" a "Promise/faith" issue in direct opposition to "Law without obedience" principles. This evening we are going to embark on the facts that God sets forth regarding the nature and function of "Law" so that we may be as clear as possible on the difference between "Law" and "Promise" as issues that control whether a person enjoys "Life".
