Romans 5:12-13 NASB
Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned -- for until the Law sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law.
Through one man sin entered into the "world" ... until the Law sin was in the "world."
The Law was given to only one people.
That seems to make sense. However, I will then point out that sin and death were applied only to one people.
But maybe that's true.
"For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death."
"Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”)"
1 John 4:14,
"And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world."
"Therefore the law was our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith."
Perhaps there is only one people in need of a Savior? Then if not, what hope do we have of one? After all, it's been demonstrated by others that "gentiles/nations" means "a Jew outside of Israel". With these definitions I can't find any evidence that scriptures are for us. Anybody else?
The verses above (just a small snapshot) indicate that Christ frees those from under the law (we weren't given the law or under the law). We didn't have that tutor to bring us to Christ; are we supposed to be brought to Christ, the Savior of some other people?
