I have declared to both Jews and Greeks that they must turn to God in repentance and have faith in our Lord Jesus.
But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law,
to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfillment--to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ.
