is: [The RV translates] ἔνι by the more forcible "there can be," (Bible Treasury 13:378)
one ^: Our being one in Christ Jesus follows in verse 28; but here [in Gal 3:26] it is not one in Christ, nor Abraham’s seed, that is being urged, but that the Galatian saints were God’s sons through faith in Christ Jesus. Drs. Alford and Ellicott were right, not the Bishop of Durham. (Bible Treasury 13:377-378)
