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.

    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.
