Bible Commentary for Galatians 2:11

Wesley's Notes for Galatians 2:11


2:11 But - The argument here comes to the height. Paul reproves Peter himself. So far was he from receiving his doctrine from man, or from being inferior to the chief of the apostles. When Peter - Afterwards, Came to Antioch - Then the chief of all the Gentile churches. I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed - For fear of man, #Gal 2:12|; for dissimulation, Gal 2:13; and for not walking uprightly. #Gal 2:14|.


People's Bible Notes for Galatians 2:11


Ga 2:11 But when Peter was come to Antioch. It is not certainly known when this event occurred, but probably not far from A.D. 51. Paul narrates it to show that Peter had no superiority over him, as the Judaizers claimed, and as the Romanists still assert. I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed. Peter did a wrong thing, and Paul rebuked him for it.
