Law of Moses

Galatians 3:16-19
 16 Now to aAbraham and his seed were the bpromises 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 afour hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.
 18 For if the ainheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise.
 19 aWherefore then serveth the law? It was badded 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 due to the people's transgression, until Christ would come.
