Jesus Was “Born Under The Law”

December 14, 2018

Galatians 4:4 says that Jesus was “born under the Law.” What does that mean? Jesus was born under the requirements of the Old Testament Law. Some people say that when Christ came, God loosened the Old Testament standards and said, “Relax; you do not have to be perfect anymore.
