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.
