People's Bible Notes for Galatians 1:18


Ga 1:18 Then, after three years I went up to Jerusalem. Three years after conversion. This journey to Jerusalem, hurried by persecution at Damascus (2Co 11:32), was probably A.D. 40. To see Peter. He had probably never met him before. He desired to form his acquaintance and counsel over their great work. He then remained fifteen days, not long enough to have been taught the gospel by Peter, if that had been his object.

    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.
