"Upon (epi) the faith of His name" (Acts 3: 16). (The faith of the lame man in the
Lord is not mentioned; faithfulness to all His name implies is rather the thought.) His
name was called Jesus, "for He shall save His people from their sins" (Matt. 1: 21).
"Shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?" (Rom. 3: 3).
"Even God's righteousness through Jesus Christ's faith" (Rom. 3: 22).
"Justifier of him who is out of the faith of Jesus" (Rom. 3: 26).
"Who walk in the steps of the faith of our father Abraham" (Rom. 4: 12).
"A man is not justified by the works of law, but through faith of Jesus Christ . . . . .
justified by faith of Christ" (Gal. 2: 16).
"The promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe" (Gal. 3: 22).
"Boldness of access . . . . . through His faith" (Eph. 3: 12).
"Righteousness . . . . . which is through faith of Christ, the out-of-God righteousness
upon faith" (Phil. 3: 9).
"Buried . . . . . also raised with Him through the faith of the inworking of God, Who
hath raised Him from the dead" (Col. 2: 12).
"Your faith" (the faith of you) (I Thess. 3: 2, 5, 7, 10).
"Have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ . . . . . with respect of persons" (James 2: 1).
"When a writer would describe a person as the author or owner of a thing, the
proper and obvious course is to write the name in the genitive case; if he desires
to present him as the object of reference, a variety of forms suggest themselves
(which are freely employed by N.T. writers, such as eis, epi, pros, and sometimes
en, with their respective cases), by which his purpose can be effected without
exposing himself to the charge of ambiguity, or the risk of misapprehension.
Should he, however, passing over all these forms, select the genitive which is the
natural expression of source or proprietorship, it is to be presumed that it was his
intention so to do, and the genitive is to be understood subjectively" (Glyne on

Galatians 3: 24 - 4: 7.
Redemption and Adoption.
pp. 151 - 155
The passage before us corresponds with 3: 13-20, thus:
D | 3: 13-20. |
i | Exagorazo. Redeemed. Heirs.
j | Covenant prior to Law.
D | 3: 24 - 4: 7. |
j | Schoolmaster before Christ.
i | Exagorazo. Redeemed. Adoption.
The two occurrences exagorazo "redeem" occur in these sections in the sense of
"buying a slave out of a market in order to set him free". In the former section, the law is
preceded by the Covenant, in the latter, the faith is preceded by the law. In one "heirs"
are in view, in the other "the heir" as the word "adoption" implies. Looking at the
