Perversion of the Gospel

6 ¶ I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting aHim who called you Iby the grace of Christ, for a bdifferent gospel; 7 which is [really] not another; only there are some who are adisturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. 8 But even if we, or aan angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel Icontrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be IIbaccursed! 9 As we ahave said before, so I say again now, bif any man is preaching to you a gospel Icontrary to what you received, he is to be IIcaccursed!

Paul Defends His Ministry

11 ¶ For aI would have you know, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is bnot according to man. 12 For aI neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but [I received it] through a brevelation of Jesus Christ.

13 ¶ For you have heard of amy former manner of life in Judaism, how I bused to persecute cthe church of God beyond measure and dtried to destroy it; 14 and I awas advancing in Judaism beyond many of my contemporaries among my Icountrymen, being more extremely zealous for my bancestral traditions. 15 But when God, who had set me apart [even] from my mother’s womb and acalled me through His grace, was pleased 16 to reveal His Son in me so that I might apreach Him among the Gentiles, bI did not immediately consult with Icflesh and blood, 17 anor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me; but I went away to Arabia, and returned once more to bDamascus.

1 ¶ Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;) 2 And all the brethren which are with me, unto the churches of Galatia: 3 Grace [be] to you and peace from God the Father, and [from] our Lord Jesus Christ, 4 Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father: 5 To whom [be] glory for ever and ever. Amen.

He wondereth that they have so soon left him and the Gospel,

6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

and accurseth those that preach any other gospel than he did.

8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any [man] preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. 10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

He learned the Gospel not of men, but of God:

11 But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. 12 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught [it], but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.

[11] 1Co 2:9; 11:23; 15:1; Ga 1:1; Ep 3:3.

and sheweth what he was before his calling,

13 For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews' religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it: 14 And profited in the Jews' religion above many my equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers. 15 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called [me] by his grace, 16 To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:

and what he did presently after it.

17 Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me; but I went into Arabia, and returned again unto Damascus. 18 Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and abode with him fifteen days. 19 But other of the apostles saw I none, save James the Lord's brother. 20 Now the things which I write unto you, behold, before God, I lie not. 21 Afterwards I came into the regions of Syria and Cilicia; 22 And was unknown by face unto the churches of Judaea which were in Christ: 23 But they had heard only, That he which persecuted us in times past now preacheth the faith which once he destroyed. 24 And they glorified God in me.
