THE LAW WAS NOT FOR GENTILES
Gentiles are we, the people that are not Israelites. Israelites are called Jews. God gave the law to Jews only and not the Gentiles. And when He gave them the law He told them read exodus 19:5 but at the end of the day, they broke the law so they lost their benefit. Now God has made a people unto Himself.
So the law was given to the nation of Israel and not to any other nation. And since the other nations were not given the law, they had no business keeping it. In fact the plan of God was that those who sinned without law should be judged without the law and vice versa [Romans 2:12]
So even if Deuteronomy 22:5 was part of the law, the gentiles have no business keeping it.
THE LAW HAS BEEN ABOLISHED
The law is referred to as the enmity that separated the Jews and the Gentiles and it is this same law Jesus came to abolish. The “abolish” means purge, eliminated, liquidate, eradicate, obliterate. It also means annul, remove, or cancel. Romans 6:14.
The law had to be abolished for its ineffectiveness [Hebrews 7:18-19] the law made nothing perfect [Galatians 2:16] the law is not made for a righteous man - [1Timothy 1:8-11], Romans 5:17, Romans 5:1.
REDEMPTION FROM THE CURES OF THE LAW FOR THE JEWS NOLY
Some people say we have all been redeemed from the curse of the law who were the scriptures actually referring to? The Gentiles, the Jews of both? Galatians 3:13
Those who were redeemed obviously are those that were under the law. And Gentiles were never under the curse of the law.
The Gentiles were condemned by the presence of the law; they were not condemned by the law, but by its presence. The very fact that God gave the law to the Jews meant He had condemned the Gentiles in sin.
It meant they were estranged from the covenant of promise alienated from the life of God. The very fact that He [God] chose the Jews, meant He didn’t choose the gentiles, just as He said Jacob have I coved, but Esau I hated [Romans 9:13]
The curse of the law is a very specific term. So when he says Christ has redeemed us from the course of the law, he is not talking about everybody but specifically about the Jews. Paul was also a Jew thus why he uses “us’.
The Gentiles were set free because the presence of the law condemned them; the abolishment of the law removed the condemnation, putting both Jews and Gentiles on equal grounds. Glory to God
The removed of the curse of the law was thus beneficial to both; it liberated the Jews, and made it possible for the gentiles to become partakers of the promise. Galatians 3:14
Oh Hallelujah, the promise that was made so Abraham which also belongs to Christ was planned to go beyond the Jewry.
The promise now belongs to us who were formally called Gentiles. No wonder the Bible says that there is neither Jew nor Gentiles. Once you belong to Christ you are Abraham’s seed and heir according to the promise.
