A much longer title then I wanted to post but since so many refuse to read the OP before responding I guess it's the only way.



Galatians 3:24 King James Version (KJV)



24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.



If this doesn't mean that the law is there to show us our need for a Savior, what does it mean?  Please make sure to keep it in context which I didn't post the whole thing here since so few read it anyway.

Good evening Lori..

It would be prudent to go back to the beginning context of the paragraph to find the answer(s).

Galatians 3:21-25..(KJV)..
"Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law. V22...But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe. V23...But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. V24...Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. V25..But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster."

Lori, I have underlined your verse 3:24 to keep us inline with your question.....

To begin the chapter, Jesus is speaking to the Galatians who are questioning the law vs faith....Rem, the time period and the Jews who for many generations have been under the LAW of MOSES. They have no idea what Justification by faith is much less that it will take the place of animal sacrifice to cover/remove their sins.
.


In verse. 23 Jesus ask the question: "Is the law then against the promises of God?" and then answers it with a  NO  (God forbid:)


Jesus then explains to them that the Law could not give life thus righteousness was not to be  found. In verse 22. Jesus tells them that scripture imprisons man with His sin (But the scripture hath concluded all under sin), but the promise of Faith in Jesus Christ frees us of that sin..(that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.)

in Verse 23...Jesus tells them, before faith, the law kept  us (before faith came, we were kept under the law,) until Faith was revealed (shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.)


Then in Verse 24..Jesus tells them the law taught them what was sin, who GOD was (the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ) until the time when faith would justify us. (that we might be justified by faith.)

Finally in verse 25..Jesus reminds them that Faith has been revealed, the LAW is no longer needed. (But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.)


Lori..Your answer is here: As stated in verse 24; The law taught them (Jews) for centuries what was sin as shown to them by GOD and it also showed them the nature of GOD in preparation (unknown to them) for what would be revealed at a later date, Justification by faith.  In verse 25, we find the Law of Moses is no longer needed now that time has arrived.

1 Cor 15:3-4.."For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

Acts 17:11.."These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."
