Galatians 1
Anderson's New Testament Par ▾ 

Paul’s Greeting to the Galatians

1PAUL, an apostle, (not from men, nor by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead,) 2and all the brethren that are with me, to the churches of Galatia:

3grace be to you, and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ, 4who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, 5to whom be glory from age to age. Amen.

No Other Gospel

6I am astonished that you are so soon turning away from him that called you into the grace of Christ, to another gospel: 7which is nothing else than that there are some who trouble you, and are determined to pervert the gospel of the Christ. 8But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach to you any other gospel than that which we have preached, let him be accursed. 9As we said before, so even now I say again, if any one preaches to you any other gospel than that which you have received, let him be accursed.

Paul Preaches the Gospel

10For, do I now seek the favor of men, or of God? or do I strive to please men? If, indeed, I would still please men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

11But I make known to you, brethren, that the gospel which is preached by me, is not according to man: 12for neither did I receive it from man, nor was it taught me, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.

13For you have heard of my former mode of life in Judaism, that I greatly persecuted the church of God, and laid it waste; 14and I surpassed in Judaism many of my own age and nation, being more exceedingly zealous for the tradition of my fathers. 15But when God, who chose me from my mother's womb, and called me by his grace, was pleased 16to reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the Gentiles, I at once declined all conference with flesh and blood: 17nor did I go up to Jerusalem, to those who were apostles before me; but I went away into Arabia, and then returned to Damascus.

18Then, after three years, I went up to Jerusalem, in order to become personally acquainted with Peter; and I remained with him fifteen days: 19but of the apostles I saw no other, but James the brother of the Lord. 20With respect to the things which I now write to you, behold, before God I lie not. 21Then, I went into the regions of Syria and Cilicia: 22but I was not known, in person, to the churches of Judea which are in Christ. 23They had heard only that he who formerly persecuted us was now preaching the faith which he once destroyed. 24And they glorified God in me.
