Gospel in the Old Testament

Galatians 3:16-19
16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.
17 And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.
18 For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise.
19 Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator.
Comment: The gospel and covenant were given to Abraham anciently, in the Old Testament. The law of Moses was added and the higher law removed due to the people's transgression, until Christ would come.
Also, Christ was preached to Abraham and he was told that Christ would come through his seed.
