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.

    To Robt. (B0b) on Matt. 28:19, Acts 2:38, etc. - I'm just curious - what scriptures do you use to back up your opinion? No judging here, just sincere curiosity.
  • Irene123
    To Bruce - May I ask you an 'honest' question - with no hidden agenda? I just take it from your comments and lack of mentioning it - that you don't believe speaking in tongues as the evidence of receiving the Holy Spirit is for these days? You have the right to your beliefs with no one 'commenting' on them. Jesus is our judge.

    Bob
    To Irene123
    Matt. 28:19 - using the words of Jesus (thru Peter) of Acts2:38; Matt. 16:19. Irene did you know that none of these verses that you used were written for you to follow. Look at Acts 9:15, Romans 16:25-26, Romans 11:13, and Gal 1:8-9. After Acts 7 even the Jews could no longer claim them. Their exalted nation status was set aside until the tribulation.
  • Bruce
    Everett:V:18: then after three years I went up to Jerusalem----.Acts9:26 and when Paul was come to Jerusalem---. Yes, he did see the apostles three years later.
