Wesley's Notes for Galatians 1:9


1:9 As - He speaks upon mature deliberation; after pausing, it seems, between the two verses. We - I and the brethren who are with me. Have said before - Many times, in effect, if not in terms. So I say - All those brethren knew the truth of the gospel. St. Paul knew the Galatians had received the true gospel.


People's Bible Notes for Galatians 1:9


Ga 1:9 As we said before. This refers, it is generally supposed, to Paul's last visit to Galatia, mentioned in Ac 18:23, at which time he had warned the brethren against the Judaizers. So say I now again, etc. The strong language shows how great a sin it is to pervert the gospel or Bible truth.

Discussion for Galatians 1:9

  • Ben weaver for verse 9
    Since cursing someone for an error seems to be contrary to the gospel, I have attempted to study the Gr. lexicon. I think I find that Ana-thema is said to be a compound word, (ana) meaning again, and (thema) meaning to lay a foundation. The same Gr. root (thema) is used in 1 Cor.3:11 where it states "Other foundation can no man lay...". If my finding is correct, teaching someone who is in error, seems more proper than cursing them.
