Paul said,

For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. Gal.3:10, Deut.27:26

We all know that our Savior never violated the law in any way, so he could not be cursed by the law, but then Paul says,

Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree Gal.3:13, Deut.21:23

Does God truly curse an innocent man by a method of execution? Paul was citing a passage that qualifies being cursed by the law which says,

And if a man have committed a sin worthy of death, and he be to be put to death, and thou hang him on a tree: Deut.21:22

So it isn't being hanged on a tree, but committing sin that brings the curse on an individual. What Paul is teaching here, is that Jesus was falsely accused, wronfully thought of as accursed of God by the people who condemned him and others passing by the cross.

under the law mans sin was transferred by the priest onto a spotless year old animal , and then the animal was killed for the sin of the man . This is known as an atonement, or propitiation

in the law it is pre figure or pattern of what Jesus did.

All have sinned

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭3:23‬ ‭KJV‬‬


and that means this

“Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.”
‭‭Ezekiel‬ ‭18:4‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Christs glory towards us is that he himself our creator who set the law of sin and death for Man , became one of us and died to atone for Our sins , if not all was lost and couldnt be redeemed because again all Have sinned and all we’re doomed to death

because death is only in existence because of sin when he does death had no hold upon him without sin he rose up and lives forever yet he paid our debt to death for our sins

he became the curse that we inherited by our sins and then he cast it away and walked out of the grave in victory . Offering the same victory to us who had no prior hope we all were going into death forever but the resurrection and life has come having went into death for us fulfilling Gods word of death to all sinners in exchange he offers remission of our sins through the gospel so we can also live with him forever

“Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?”
‭‭John‬ ‭11:25-26‬ ‭KJV‬‬

His death atoned for our sins because we couldn’t pay that price without dying forever he did it and rose back up calling us into life by his word and belief paid for by his bloodshed at Calvary

I love Paul's Epistle to the Galatians. Count me in on any disccusion of Galatians.
So it isn't being hanged on a tree, but committing sin that brings the curse on an individual. What Paul is teaching here, is that Jesus was falsely accused, wronfully thought of as accursed of God by the people who condemned him and others passing by the cross.
This is not what Paul is saying in his epistle to the Galatians. The message in chapter three is a personal favorite.

10 For all who rely on works of the law are under a curse;

11 Now it is evident that no one is justified before God by the law, for “The righteous shall live by faith.”

12 But the law is not of faith, rather “The one who does them shall live by them.”

13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us

14 so that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we might receive the promised Spirit through faith.

The remaining verses (15-29) of the third chapter of Galatians are very powerful. Read them over a few times or several times.

Summed up:
Through Abraham we were under a promise. The law was given 430 years later as a gaurdian. Through Christ we are back under God's promise.

Again. We no longer live under the law. We now live back under the promise through faith in Jesus Christ. We are now adopted heirs of the promise.

29 And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's offspring, heirs according to promise.
