The Expositor's Greek Testament suggests this for Galatians 4:31-5:1
(Galatians translator/commentator is Frederic Rendall, who seems to be
somewhat iconoclastic in his interpretations/translations):
"Wherefore, brethren, we are not children of a handmaid, but Christ set us
free with the freedom of the freewoman."
I wonder if another possible translation (along this same idea) would be:
"Therefore, brethren, we are not children of the handmaid, but [we are]
children of the freewoman in (locative?) (or "by" - instrumental) the
freedom [with which] Christ freed us."
What do you think? This is a totally different punctuation than is usually
adopted in that it makes 5:1(a) a subordinate(?) clause of 4:31.
