Paul Defends His Gospel at Jerusalem

Tools specific to Gal 2:1

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 2:1

Then after fourteen years I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, taking Titus along also.

Tools specific to Gal 2:2

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 2:2

I went up according to a revelation and presented to them the gospel I preach among the Gentiles, but privately to those recognized as leaders. I wanted to be sure I was not running, and had not been running, in vain.

Tools specific to Gal 2:3

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 2:3

But not even Titus, who was with me, was compelled to be circumcised, even though he was a Greek.

Tools specific to Gal 2:4

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 2:4

This matter arose because some false brothers had infiltrated our ranks to spy on the freedom we have in Christ Jesus in order to enslave us.

Tools specific to Gal 2:5

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 2:5

But we did not give up and submit to these people for even a moment, so that the truth of the gospel would be preserved for you.

Tools specific to Gal 2:6

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 2:6

Now from those recognized as important (what they once were makes no difference to me; God does not show favoritism) ​— ​they added nothing to me.

Tools specific to Gal 2:7

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 2:7

On the contrary, they saw that I had been entrusted with the gospel for the uncircumcised, just as Peter was for the circumcised,

Tools specific to Gal 2:8

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 2:8

since the one at work in Peter for an apostleship to the circumcised was also at work in me for the Gentiles.

Tools specific to Gal 2:9

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 2:9

When James, Cephas, and John ​— ​those recognized as pillars ​— ​acknowledged the grace that had been given to me, they gave the right hand of fellowship to me and Barnabas, agreeing that we should go to the Gentiles and they to the circumcised.

Tools specific to Gal 2:10

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 2:10

They asked only that we would remember the poor, which I had made every effort to do.

  
Freedom from the Law

Tools specific to Gal 2:11

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 2:11

But when Cephas came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face because he stood condemned.

Tools specific to Gal 2:12

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 2:12

For he regularly ate with the Gentiles before certain men came from James. However, when they came, he withdrew and separated himself, because he feared those from the circumcision party.

Tools specific to Gal 2:13

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 2:13

Then the rest of the Jews joined his hypocrisy, so that even Barnabas was led astray by their hypocrisy.

Tools specific to Gal 2:14

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 2:14

But when I saw that they were deviating from the truth of the gospel, I told Cephas in front of everyone, “If you, who are a Jew, live like a Gentile and not like a Jew, how can you compel Gentiles to live like Jews? ”

Tools specific to Gal 2:15

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 2:15

We are Jews by birth and not “Gentile sinners,”

Tools specific to Gal 2:16

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 2:16

and yet because we know that a person is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we ourselves have believed in Christ Jesus. This was so that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law, because by the works of the law no human being will be justified.

Tools specific to Gal 2:17

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 2:17

But if we ourselves are also found to be “sinners” while seeking to be justified by Christ, is Christ then a promoter of sin? Absolutely not!

Tools specific to Gal 2:18

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 2:18

If I rebuild those things that I tore down, I show myself to be a lawbreaker.

Tools specific to Gal 2:19

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 2:19

For through the law I died to the law, so that I might live for God.

Tools specific to Gal 2:20

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 2:20

I have been crucified with Christ, and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Tools specific to Gal 2:21

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 2:21

I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died for nothing.
