“Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and abode with him fifteen days.”
King James Version (KJV)
1:18 Then after three years - Wherein I had given full proof of my apostleship. I went to visit Peter - To converse with him.
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.
