    Jn 1:17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
    (MY NOTE: Grace = our undeserved/unworked for favor/blessing from God. Is accessed through our faith placed in Christ's sin atoning death & resurrection)

    Rom 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
    (MY NOTE: This epistle is written to believers (Rom 1:7) & proclaims believers are not under the law, but under grace).

    1 Jn 3:4 Sin is a transgression of the Law:

    Ok, we've all have broken God's law. No one can say he's not a sinner UNTIL a means is provided (not to take away a the law) but to remove the sin, which is the transgression of the law.

    Faith placed in Jesus sin payment & resurrection takes away/removes ALL our sin. Once our sins have been removed, there is no transgression of the law.

    Under the law (God gave Moses, to give, to Israel), compliance invoked blessings (Deut 28:1-14). Non-compliance invoked curses (Deut 28:15-68). When Jesus became a curse (Gal 3:13) He REDEEMED every believers from all non-compliance curses/penalties invoked from breaking the law (Rom 5:20).

    When scripture say's you're not under the law. It means the penalties due for non-compliance are no longer levied/imposed. Jesus paid every believers due wage (death). He took all the laws sin invoked judgments/curses upon Himself for us.

    Jesus sin atoning payment is found: In His death (sins required wage PAID), burial (proof Jesus died) & resurrection (Fathers receipt, sins payment received & accepted). Is seized/accessed via FAITH (Rom 5:1-2, 10:9-10, Eph 1:13, 2:8) placed in the faithful, obedient work & resurrection of Jesus the Christ!

    Christ's righteousness (Jer 23:6 & 33:16) is imputed/transferred (Rom 4:3-8) onto us & our sins are imputed/transferred onto Christ. While the Temple was operating the High Priest had authority to impute/transfer sin (Lev 16:21).

    Christ our Great High Priest (Heb 4:14) has the power to not only impute our sin onto Himself. Our High Priest can also impute His righteousness onto the believer. See Lev 4 & Rom 4 for additional imputation context.

    2 Cor 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
    (NOTE: We become the righteousness of God thru faith in Christs works)

    1 Cor 1:30 Because of him that you are "in Christ", who has become for us wisdom from God that is, our righteousness, holiness & redemption
    (NOTE: Thru belief in the Christ/Lord our righteousness (Jer 23:6) also comes our holiness & redemption)

    Rom 3:22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:
    (NOTE: The righteousness of God is accessed/imputed thru the faith "OF" Christ & given to all that trust/believe in Jesus sin payment & resurrection)

    Rom 3:25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
    (NOTE: Its thru His righteous work at Calvary & our faith place in them whereby we receive remission/forgiveness/pardon from sin)

    Heb 9:12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.
    (NOTE: Christ via the offering of his own sinless blood, entered once into heaven holy place & obtained ETERNAL REDEMPTION for us.)

    Heb 9:15 And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.
    (NOTE: Christ sinless payment REDEEMED believers/saints from Mosaic law sin punishment & has obtained scriptures promise of an ETERNAL inheritance)

    Heb 10:14 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.
    (NOTE: Christ PERFECTED FOREVER those that are sanctified)

    Eph 4:30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
    (NOTE: Eph written to saints/believers (see Ehp 1:1) Are SEALED via Christ's indwelling Holy Spirit until the day of our bodily redemption)

    Ju 1:1 Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ
    (NOTE: Believers/saints are sanctified by God & PRESERVED in Jesus Christ)

    Ps 37:28 For the Lord loves justice, And does not forsake His saints; They are preserved forever, But the descendants of the wicked shall be cut off.
    (NOTE: The Lord doesn't forsake His saints/believers, but, PRESERVES them FOREVER!)

    Law demands righteousness via works. Grace supplies righteousness via faith.

    Only Christ can preform the new covenant baptism of/with His eternal salvation sealing Holy Spirit (2 Cor 1:22, 5:5, 2 Tim 1:14, Eph 4:30).
