What then is the law? It was added because of transgressions. Galatians 3.19.

We should know that God gives the law not for men to keep but rather for them to know that they cannot keep it. God already knows men have sinned, and yet people themselves do not know they have sinned. So God gives the law in order to cause men to know themselves and to know that they cannot keep the law. Surely our Lord knows all about this. It is absolutely inconceivable that the Son of God would come to this world to teach people to keep the law which is beyond their power to keep and which is itself added because of transgression. Since the law cannot keep people from sinning, would the Son of God come to tell them to do the impossible? God sends His Son to save men, therefore the Son will not insist on their keeping the law as a condition for their salvation.
