Neither you nor any sincere Jew could keep perfectly all of the Law. “For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works [self-effort], so that no one may boast” (Eph 2:8-9). Why then the Law? The Apostle Paul continues, “Therefore the Law has become our tutor [child-conductor] to lead us to Christ, so that we may be justified by faith. But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor [the Law]. For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus” (Gal 3:16).
