Ga 2:6 But of these who seemed to be somewhat. Who held high positions in the church; the apostles at Jerusalem; Peter, James and John, who are mentioned below. Whatsoever they are, it maketh no matter to me. However high their position, that does not alter the facts. They who seemed [to be somewhat] in conference. The leaders in the conference described in Ac 15:6. Added nothing to me. They gave me no new instructions or authority. They had no change to suggest in the gospel I preached.
