Thesis:   Paul's focus on "The Legislation", "The Service", and "The Promises" is a reiteration of the prior trilogy as he focused upon the foundational processes of "bringing many sons to glory".

Introduction:   In our last three studies we looked into "The Adoption" as the ultimate fulfillment of God's Life Plan for those who believe; "The Glory" as the underlying foundation for our participation in the inheritance; and "The Covenants" as those particular "excesses" of God in attempting to get men to actually walk in the faith.

I call "The Covenants" God's "excesses" because the author of Hebrews said in Hebrews 6:17 that God added "oath" to promises in order to get men to actually buy into what He had promised.

In the last set of three in Paul's list of issues to which the Israelites had been subjected in exposure for blessing, we find "The Giving of Law", "The Service (of the sanctuary)", and "The Promises". Because he moves from Law to Promise and because Law is the tutor to bring us the Adoption, I think I see a deliberate reiteration of three major theses, but with a specific focus upon the divine methodology in view of the inheritance over which we are going to be given authority.
