02) Paul's vital defense of his apostleship (Galatians 1:10-24)Eric Peterman, August 4, 2019
Part of the Galatians series, taught at a Sunday Morning service
In this part of the Galatian letter, launches into a defense of the gospel of God's grace, by defending the fact that he has been given direct, divine revelation, an entire systematic corpus of knowledge and doctrine, personally, by the living and resurrected Jesus Christ. This makes him a fully qualified Apostle! That is, one sent by the Lord Jesus Christ as an ambassador with the full authority to declare war or make peace with sinful man through the gospel, the good news, that the rightly offended monarch has died, buried and was raised on behalf of treasonous rebels, so that they might by relieved of their pending execution and truly reconciled in love to the Living God. No other so called “gospel” will do!

10For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. 11But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. 12For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ. 13For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews' religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it: 14And profited in the Jews' religion above many my equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers. 15But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me by his grace, 16To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood: 17Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me; but I went into Arabia, and returned again unto Damascus. 18Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and abode with him fifteen days. 19But other of the apostles saw I none, save James the Lord's brother. 20Now the things which I write unto you, behold, before God, I lie not. 21Afterwards I came into the regions of Syria and Cilicia; 22And was unknown by face unto the churches of Judaea which were in Christ: 23But they had heard only, That he which persecuted us in times past now preacheth the faith which once he destroyed. 24And they glorified God in me. (KJV)
