Jesus under law?

Perhaps one of the arguments that the Judaizers used to sway the Galatians was that Jesus was under the law.  That is true, Paul says, but it was for the purpose of redeeming those who were under the law.  Jesus not only kept the law but He was cursed to redeem those who were under its curse.  If my son swims in a dugout and is drowning and I jump into the dugout to rescue him, is he going to say, “But Daddy swam in the dugout, too.”  Yes…to rescue him!    Yes, Jesus was under the law, but not to exhort people to earn God’s blessing by keeping the law. It was to rescue those who were under the law.   –  M McC
