Wesley's Notes for Galatians 1:19

1:19 But other of the apostles I saw none, save James the brother (that is, the kinsman) of the Lord - Therefore when Barnabas is said to have brought him into the apostles, #Acts 9:27|, only St. Peter and St James are meant.

People's Bible Notes for Galatians 1:19

Ga 1:19 But other of the apostles saw I none. The other apostles were probably absent among churches of Judea (Ac 9:31). Save James, the Lord's brother. Not James the brother of John, an apostle, but James, "the brother of the Lord", named in Ac 12:17 15:13 21:18. This James was not one of the Twelve, but rose to great dignity and influence in the church at Jerusalem. He is called here "the brother of the Lord", to distinguish him from "James, the son of Zebedee" (Mt 4:21 10:2 Mr 1:19 3:17), and "James, the son of Alphaeus" (Mt 10:3 Mr 3:18 Lu 6:15 Ac 1:13), who were of the Twelve. For Introduction to Epistle of James, see PNT "Jas 1:1".

    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.
  • Robert
    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.
  • Everett
