    1. What does Paul mean when he says we are "no more under law, but under grace?" (Romans 6:14).

    Our answer to this question must account for the fact that Paul sees something different now from before the time of Christ. Galatians 3:24 teaches that Old Testament saints were kept by a "child conductor" (paidagogos) until the time of Christ.

    What is the difference Paul is referring to? Arguments have tended to fall into a "law is good for you" camp and a "law is bad for you" camp (Source: McCallum, 2004). See attached chart that shows the arguments typical of both sides (see attachment).

    I hope this helps. Good luck!
