Hagar is the bondwoman and mother of those under the law. Who is the mother of those who receive the promise of sonship?

Answer: Jersusalem, which is above. Note that Galatians was written somewhere between 40 AD and 60 AD with most believing it was written in the late 40s and early 50s AD.  Revelation was written in 95 AD.  Revelation 21:1-2 states:

1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.  (NOTE THE WORD: “WERE” PASSED AWAY–ALREADY!)

And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.  (NEW JERUSALEM IS SPIRITUAL AND REPLACED THE EARTHLY JERUSALEM–SPIRITUAL: (GRACE TO THOSE UNDER THE PROMISE.)

Jesus stated in Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21 that heaven and earth (Jewish age of the law) would pass away DURING THE GENERATION OF THE DISCIPLES and Galatians says that New Jerusalem is the mother of those under the promise. Galatians was written before Revelation.

AND SEE THIS, ALSO WRITTEN BEFORE Revelation:

Matthew 5:17:

17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.  (He fulfilled the law and the prophetsThe Jewish age of the law ended and grace appeared.)

18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. (He fulfilled the law)

“Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.” Matthew 5:17. Now read verse 18.

Galatians 4:22-31:

22 For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman.

23 But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise.

24 Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Hagar.

25 For this Hagar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.

26 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.

27 For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband.

28 Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise. [the promise is sonship]

29 But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now.

30 Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman. [under the law and not under the promise]

31 So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.

Revelation 21:1:

And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

SEE:

THE BLESSING of Abraham is given, through Jesus Christ, so that we may receive the PROMISE of the Spirit through faith. What is that PROMISE?

 

What did Christ redeem us from? And why?

 

What does the Bible call the people who receive the promise through Abraham, who is father of the seed, which is Christ?

 

Heavenly Jerusalem (New Jerusalem), City of the Living God, With Jesus The Mediator Of The New Covenant

 

Jesus inside us (the hope of glory)–His Spiritual Kingdom returned in 70 AD (while most wait on His physical return)
