Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Galatians 1:12


1:12 For neither did I receive it - At once. Nor was I taught it - Slowly and gradually, by any man. But by the revelation of Jesus Christ - Our Lord revealed to him at first, his resurrection, ascension, and the calling of the gentiles, and his own apostleship; and told him then, there were other things for which he would appear to him.


People's Bible Notes for Galatians 1:12


Ga 1:12 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught [it]. It could not be of man, for it did not come to him from man. No preacher or apostle taught it to him. But by the revelation of Jesus Christ. It came by a direct revelation of Christ. The first revelation was on the way to Damascus (Ac 26:13-18). There were no doubt successive revelations (2Co 12:1).

    Edna,Eph.2:8-10"Saved by grace through faith" a gift from God. But once the gift is given one must do His commandments,good works.James2:17"Even so faith if it hath not works, is dead, being alone." Please read the whole book of James. Dead faith will not get anyone into His Kingdom. Nothing negates the scripture in James.

    The 12 preached the gospel of the kingdom always to the Jew, Paul preached the gospel of Grace mainly the Gentile but Jew's welcome. Peter did go to the house of a gentile.

    Spivey: Everything ends in death because that's what God has decided Heb 9:27 ...it's appointed unto man once to die.... And we cannot choose how long we should live b'cos life is not ours Life belongs to God He decides how long one should live. James 4:13-15 If you are a true child of God, the process of death: long sickness might be scary but not death itself. After all you are going home.
