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.

    Lu2677; Hi! I haven't seen you posting for a while; I hope you are well! I was just reading over our discussion from back in June: the way this format is set up sometimes leaves you in a bit of a time warp, and the discussion can get thrown off the rails. I am very grateful however that we have this; and hope that it is a blessing to many. The Lord bless you and keep you, and let His face shine!

    If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book. And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life... Rev. 22:18,19
  • Elijah
    If you examine the answer for your first question, the answer which you call correct is actually wrong. The answer, in order for it to be totally correct, must include the Father. If you look at the textural answer it states that, "by Jesus Christ, and God the Father. This answer is the one and only true answer. It was by the will of the Father also, not just Christ.

    I love this chapter, Paul was serious. I find the Bible fascinating and love God so much for loving us. We have been indoctrinated into this evil world, glad to see you all staying close to the word. When I see comments I made on YouTube mths ago, I use to cringe, now I laugh and correct my behavior. Good job reeling in the vanity beast...God bless us all
  • BSP
    In verses 11 through 13 we see that humility helped Paul to accept counsel. If we cultivate humility, this will help us to accept counsel as well.
