Worth Pondering: Galatians 3:16

by G. Campbell Morgan | October 30, 1998

When we look at this Man [Christ Jesus] we see the negation of all distinctions. I quote from Paul in the Galatian letter for the sake of conciseness and brevity: “There can be neither Jew nor Greek, there can be neither bond nor free, there can be no male or female; for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.” Mark the divisions. How is humanity divided today? By race, by caste, and by sex. In Christ there is neither race, nor caste, nor sex. Think in the presence of Paul’s word of this Man presented in the Gospel [of Luke], and see how He represents every type, every class, every possibility, every phase…. Whatever the type or class may be, both men and women find in Him the inspiration of noblest things, the crown and glory of all that which is peculiar to them…. If in Him I find the negation of distinctions, in Him also I find the realization of the essentials of human nature as I know it.
