Heirs of Abraham’s promise (Gal. 3:29)

“If you belong

To Christ,

Then you are

Abraham’s offspring,


According to the promise.”

εἰ δὲ ὑμεῖς Χριστοῦ, ἄρα τοῦ Ἀβραὰμ σπέρμα ἐστέ, κατ’ ἐπαγγελίαν κληρονόμοι.

Paul said, “If you belong to Christ (εἰ δὲ ὑμεῖς Χριστοῦ), then you are Abraham’s offspring (ἄρα τοῦ Ἀβραὰμ σπέρμα ἐστέ), heirs according to the promise (κατ’ ἐπαγγελίαν κληρονόμοι).”  Paul explained that once you belonged to Jesus Christ, then you were immediately part of the seeds or offspring of Abraham.  You then shared in the promise that was given to Abraham.  Paul saw the close relationship between Jesus and Abraham.  The followers of Jesus Christ were also the seeds or the sons and daughters of Abraham.  You then inherited the divine promise made to Abraham.  Do you believe that you are a son or daughter of Abraham?
