Galatians 3:1-29

 Galatians 3:1 and 2:

3:1Oh unmindful Galatians, who fascinated you, to whom according to (your) eyes it was written-beforehand: Jesus Christ having been crucified2? .2This only I intend to learn from you: did you receive the spirit from works of law or from (the) thing-heard of belief?

Paul specifically addresses the Galatian holy-people (sanctified-people, Christians, saints, children of God) expressing his deep emotion as he rhetorically asks: Oh Galatians not applying your minds and therefore are unlearned or unintelligent, who fascinated you (who prated, idly spoke long using devilish magic-arts, charming you into evil with their evil eye), you to whom it was previously written (plainly portrayed) and seen with your eyes that Jesus Christ is the one who was crucified (emphasizing Jesus Christ’s obedience and service to God on a horizontal level to benefit people) and this truth, which incorporates all that he accomplished by this, has not changed with the passing of time?

This alone I intend to learn (the answer to the following two-part question I will to become informed of intellectually) from you Galatians:

God's belief regarding Himself and His son, the Lord Jesus Christ, has been spoken and heard by people. All holy-people received holy spirit-life when we first believed the belief that God has given all of mankind to believe since Jesus’ resurrection, 40 days later his ascension into heaven to God’s right-hand side, and then 10 days later the gift of holy spirit was first made available on the day of Pentecost.  

This thing-heard of belief (Romans 10:8-17) was not available during the law because Jesus Christ, the redeemer, the savior, had not even been born yet. The people who lived during those times could believe God's belief which He spoke to them and was heard by them regarding all that the Christ would accomplish at a future time to them (Luke 24:25-27).
