galatians 4:4 -When the fullness of time came God sent forth his son………

discus this statement in the right of how God opened his way to the establishment of the new testament church

What do YOU think?



  1. When God speaks about the “fulness” on any particular subject it tends to get us thinking what time is He speaking of that we should know?

    We should, when studying any subject in the Bible, look at the entirety and not just individual verses.
    Chapter 4 concerns heirs and sons of God and I think we should be looking at verse 4 and 5 together to understand this.

    Gal 4:4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,
    Gal 4:5 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.

    Joshua is correct.
    This simply means that the when the specific time would come that He saw fit to send Jesus Christ to free us from the Law. Under the Law we are servants, through Jesus Christ we have become adopted sons and free from the Law.

    The other interesting thing is that Jesus when He came, was
    Gal 4:5b …born subject to [the regulations of] the Law,
    Gal 4:5a To purchase the freedom of (to ransom, to redeem, to atone for) those who were subject to the Law… (Amplified Bible)

    The one I had questions about was “…until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in.” Rom 11:25

      Hi Beska

      The fullness of the time which was being spoken of by Paul to the Galatians, was the time in which they were living.

      1) Paul said to them, “God sent forth His son.”
      2) When did God send forth His son?
      3) “When the fullness of the time was come.”
      4) When was the Fullness of time?
      5) When Jesus came.
      6) Jesus was born in the flesh, and under the Law, as a Jew.
      7) Why was Jesus born a Jew?
      8 ) To redeem the Jews who were under the Law.
      9) That we the Gentiles, would receive the adoption as sons of God.
      10) The people of the fullness of the time were the ELECT, the Remnant

      The fullness of the time spoken of, was 2000 yrs. ago.
      Read 1 Pet.1:1-12

      Be Blessed

    When the time was right, God the father sent his son to us.
    When HIS time was right.
