25 You are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant that God made with our fathers, saying to Abraham, 'And in your seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed, [because you have obeyed my voice].'
|Galatians 3:8 |
8 And [know] the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, [God] preached the gospel to Abraham beforehand, saying, "In you will all nations be blessed." [In the time of Abraham, not a single scripture existed. Christ did the preaching of the gospel then; he preaches now; and Christ will continue to preach the gospel from within a man's heart. See Col 1:23 footnote for more.]
