“The law so designated by Paul (Gal. 3:24, 25). As so used, the” “word does not mean teacher, but pedagogue (shortened into the” “modern page), i.e., one who was intrusted with the supervision” “of a family, taking them to and from the school, being” responsible for their safety and manners. Hence the pedagogue was stern and severe in his discipline. Thus the law was a “pedagogue to the Jews, with a view to Christ, i.e., to prepare” for faith in Christ by producing convictions of guilt and “helplessness. The office of the pedagogue ceased when “faith” “came”, i.e., the object of that faith, the seed, which is” Christ.
