The Law given to Moses is our Teacher leading to Christ (Galatians 3:24)

“The Law became our guardian leading to Christ” (Galatians 3:24)
The purpose of the Law given to Israel was to prepare the people for the coming of the Messiah. The Law has taught the need for liberation from the sinful condition of humanity (represented by the people of Israel): “That is why, just as through one man sin entered into the world and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men because they had all sinned — . For until the Law sin was in the world, but sin is not charged against anyone when there is no law” (Romans 5:13). This Law of God uncovered the sinful condition of humanity, represented in that time by the people of Israel: “What, then, are we to say? Is the Law sin? Certainly not! Really, I would not have come to know sin had it not been for the Law. For example, I would not have known covetousness if the Law had not said: “You must not covet.” But sin, finding the opportunity afforded by the commandment, worked out in me covetousness of every sort, for apart from law sin was dead. In fact, I was once alive apart from law. But when the commandment arrived, sin came to life again, but I died. And the commandment that was to lead to life, this I found led to death. For sin, finding the opportunity afforded by the commandment, seduced me and killed me through it. So the Law in itself is holy, and the commandment is holy and righteous and good” (Romans 7: 7–12).
Therefore, the Law was a “tutor”, “guardian”, a teacher or an instructor leading to Christ: “So the Law became our guardian leading to Christ, so that we might be declared righteous through faith. But now that the faith has arrived, we are no longer under a guardian” (Galatians 3:24,25). The perfect Law of God, having uncovered the sinful condition of humankind through the transgression of man, showed the necessity of a sacrifice. It would lead to the redemption of the transgressing human by his faith in Jesus Christ Ransom because of his faith (and not the works of the Law). This sacrifice would be that of Christ: “Just as the Son of man came, not to be ministered to, but to minister and to give his life as a ransom in exchange for many” (Matthew 20: 28).
