Galatians 3:23 Now before faith came, we were held captive under the law, imprisoned until the coming faith would be revealed.
Israel was held captive under the law until the coming of faith. Therefore, once faith was revealed in Jesus Christ and the new covenant, Jews were no longer under the law. They were once imprisoned and held captive by the law, but they were set free when faith was revealed. Paul states the same thing in Romans 7:6 But now we are released from the law, having died to that which held us captive, so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit and not in the old way of the written code. Being released from the law precludes running back to law with a new motive of sanctification. It makes no sense to be set free from captivity only to return to the source of the captivity and submit once again to the yoke of slavery.
