Tools specific to Gal 1:2

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 1:2

All the brothers and sisters[fn] here join me in sending this letter to the churches of Galatia.

All glory to God forever and ever! Amen.

Tools specific to Gal 1:6

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 1:6

I am shocked that you are turning away so soon from God, who called you to himself through the loving mercy of Christ.[fn] You are following a different way that pretends to be the Good News

Tools specific to Gal 1:7

I say again what we have said before: If anyone preaches any other Good News than the one you welcomed, let that person be cursed.

Tools specific to Gal 1:10

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 1:10

Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant.

Dear brothers and sisters, I want you to understand that the gospel message I preach is not based on mere human reasoning.

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 1:13

You know what I was like when I followed the Jewish religion—how I violently persecuted God’s church. I did my best to destroy it.

Tools specific to Gal 1:16

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 1:16

to reveal his Son to me[fn] so that I would proclaim the Good News about Jesus to the Gentiles. When this happened, I did not rush out to consult with any human being.[fn]

Tools specific to Gal 1:17

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 1:17

Nor did I go up to Jerusalem to consult with those who were apostles before I was. Instead, I went away into Arabia, and later I returned to the city of Damascus.

Tools specific to Gal 1:18

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 1:18

Then three years later I went to Jerusalem to get to know Peter,[fn] and I stayed with him for fifteen days.

Tools specific to Gal 1:19

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 1:19

The only other apostle I met at that time was James, the Lord’s brother.

Tools specific to Gal 1:20

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 1:20

I declare before God that what I am writing to you is not a lie.

Tools specific to Gal 1:21

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 1:21

After that visit I went north into the provinces of Syria and Cilicia.

Tools specific to Gal 1:22

Tools specific to Gal 1:24

Unchecked Copy Box Gal 1:24

And they praised God because of me.
