Galatians 1

   

Introduction

  border
Galatians 1:1
  Paul, an apostle (not sent from men nor through the agency of man, but through Jesus Christ and God the Father, who raised Him from the dead),
   
Galatians 1:2
  and all the brethren who are with me, To the churches of Galatia:
   
Galatians 1:3
  Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ,
   
Galatians 1:4
  who gave Himself for our sins so that He might rescue us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father,
   
Galatians 1:5
  to whom be the glory forevermore. Amen.
     
   

Perversion of the Gospel

   
Galatians 1:6
  I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel;
   
Galatians 1:7
  which is really not another; only there are some who are disturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ.
   
Galatians 1:8
  But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed!
   
Galatians 1:9
  As we have said before, so I say again now, if any man is preaching to you a gospel contrary to what you received, he is to be accursed!
   
Galatians 1:10
  For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ.
     
   

Paul Defends His Ministry

   
Galatians 1:11
  For I would have you know, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not according to man.
   
Galatians 1:12
  For I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but I received it through a revelation of Jesus Christ.
   
Galatians 1:13
  For you have heard of my former manner of life in Judaism, how I used to persecute the church of God beyond measure and tried to destroy it;
   
Galatians 1:14
  and I was advancing in Judaism beyond many of my contemporaries among my countrymen, being more extremely zealous for my ancestral traditions.
   
Galatians 1:15
  But when God, who had set me apart even from my mother's womb and called me through His grace, was pleased
   
Galatians 1:16
  to reveal His Son in me so that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately consult with flesh and blood,
   
Galatians 1:17
  nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me; but I went away to Arabia, and returned once more to Damascus.
   
Galatians 1:18
  Then three years later I went up to Jerusalem to become acquainted with Cephas, and stayed with him fifteen days.
   
Galatians 1:19
  But I did not see any other of the apostles except James, the Lord's brother.
   
Galatians 1:20
  (Now in what I am writing to you, I assure you before God that I am not lying.)
   
Galatians 1:21
  Then I went into the regions of Syria and Cilicia.
   
Galatians 1:22
  I was still unknown by sight to the churches of Judea which were in Christ;
   
Galatians 1:23
  but only, they kept hearing, "He who once persecuted us is now preaching the faith which he once tried to destroy."
   
Galatians 1:24
  And they were glorifying God because of me.
