    Chapter 3 — The Coming of the Promised Seed

    “WHEN the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, ... made under the law, to redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.” 1Galatians 4:4, 5.GSAM 57.1

    “Now to him that is of power to establish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, but now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith: to God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ forever.” 2Romans 16:25-27.GSAM 57.2

    “By revelation he made known unto me the mystery; as I wrote afore in few words, ... which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit.... Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; and to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ.” 3Ephesians 3:3-9.GSAM 57.3

    It has been said that in the Old Testament the gospel lies concealed; in the New Testament it is revealed. As expressed by another, “As they departed from God, the Jews in a great degree lost sight of the teachings of the ritual service. That service had been instituted by Christ himself. In every part it was a symbol of him; and it had been full of vitality and spiritual beauty. But the Jews lost the spiritual life from their ceremonies, and clung to the dead forms. They trusted to the sacrifices and ordinances themselves, instead of resting upon him to whom they pointed.GSAM 57.4
