  The Schoolmaster That Led To Christ.   Last week’s lesson ended with  Galatians 3:24,  which says;  “Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.”   The word “schoolmaster”, as it’s used here in this verse, doesn’t specifically mean a teacher, but rather, it refers to one who is in charge of the total oversight of someone, or of a…
