Wesley's Notes for Galatians 2:15


2:15 We - St. Paul, to spare St. Peter, drops the first person singular, and speaks in the plural number. #Gal 2:18|, he speaks in the first person singular again by a figure; and without a figure, #Gal 2:19|, &c. Who are Jews by nature - By birth, not proselytes only. And not sinners of the gentiles - That is, not sinful Gentiles; not such gross, enormous, abandoned sinners, as the heathens generally were.

    "For faith comes by hearing the word of God"
  • David
    What l think is not important, so when you ask my thoughts you ask of Christ's gospel witch is written on your heart. Knowing all flesh is sinful, my human ideals are unrighteous as no one is completely holy in the flesh. Ask the lord thy God ruler of heaven these things that you seek, thus total truth be shown in light, a honest revelation added unto your spirit.

    I am starting to study figures of speech that are used in the Bible. It is helping me tremendously to under stand what I am reading. No one ever taught me a thing about figures when involved with churches. But I find that without a basic understanding of figures of speech, the Word of God becomes much more difficult. For example: anaphora in Ephesians 6:12.

    matthew 26:39 and HE went alittle further and fell on HIS face and prayed saying O MY FATHER if it be possible let this cup pass from ME nevertheless not as I will but as thou wilt matthew 26:42 HE went away again the second time and prayed saying O MY FATHER if this cup may not pass away from ME except I drink it thy will be done mark 10:38 But JESUS said unto them you know not what you ask can you drink of the cup I drink of and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with 39 and they said unto HIM we can and JESUS said unto them you shall indeed drink of the cup that I drink of and with the baptism that I am baptized withal shall you be baptized 1 CORINTHIANS 10:21 YOU CANNOT DRINK THE CUP OF THE LORD AND THE CUP OF devils YOU CANNOT BE PARTAKERS OF THE LORDS TABLE AND OF THE TABLE OF devils 1 CORINTHIANS 11:27 WHEREFORE WHOSOEVER SHALL EAT THIS BREAD AND DRINK THIS CUP OF THE LORD UNWORTHILY SHALL BE GUILTY OF THE BODY AND BLOOD OF THE LORD

    To Bro. Daniel FC on Gal. ch. 2 - I answered your question about the flood-time 'laws' 3 wks. ago. I'm not one to debate God's word. There's nothing wrong with that; I just don't do it.
  • Bro. Daniel FC
    To: Irene 123 Part 1 Are you saying that God destroyed the antediluvians in spite of the fact that they had no laws to guide them in righteousness? Is God unfair? Sin is the transgression of the law 1Jn. 3:4, and the wages of sin is death Rom. 6:23.
