Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Galatians 1:16


1:16 To reveal his Son in me - By the powerful operation of his Spirit, #2Cor 4:6|; as well as to me, by the heavenly vision. That I might preach him to others - Which I should have been ill qualified to do, had I not first known him myself. I did not confer with flesh and blood - Being fully satisfied of the divine will, and determined to obey, I took no counsel with any man, neither with my own reason or inclinations, which might have raised numberless objections.


People's Bible Notes for Galatians 1:16


Ga 1:16 To reveal his Son in me. It was one thing to call him, as was done on the way to Damascus; another to reveal Christ to him. This was needful that he should be a witness of the resurrection to the Gentiles. I conferred not with flesh and blood. He did not go to men to learn more, or for counsel.

    The scripture we are reading, along with ll Corinthians 11:4, will put to rest false religions and false gospels that have sprung up among us. Read the Bible and talk to Jesus. We can't go wrong!

  • Rev Horton Singleton
    The book of Galatians gives a clear view of God working salvation and accptance in one who have turned from the worldly life to accepting Jesus Christ as his personal savior the changing of paul on the Damascus road demonstrates how God can change our hell bound direction and show us the heaven bound direction if we allow him...praise his wonderful name.

    The Law of the OT, show us that we are in bondage because of our sins. Jesus Spirit free us from the law. Jesus said he came to fulfill the law so that we would be recognized by His Spirit, even if we did not know all the laws. We are free from sin and under no condemnation. If we abide in His spirit we can be fruitful and multiply, and bring joy, honor, and praise to God Kingdom through others
