Main point summary
The Galatians must turn away from the perverted gospel because Paul, a God-chosen apostle, is seeking to please only God.
1:1-10 (Feb. 8/19)
Galatians 1:1-10
Paul, an a apostle—
b not from men
nor through man,
but c through Jesus Christ
and God the Father,
d who raised him from the dead—
and all e the brothers 1 who are with me,
To f the churches of Galatia:
g Grace to you and peace
h from God our Father
and the Lord Jesus Christ,
i who gave himself for our sins
to deliver us from the present j evil age,
according to the will of k our God and Father,
to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.
I am astonished
that you are l so quickly deserting m him
who called you in the grace of Christ
and are turning to n a different gospel—
o not that there is another one,
but p there are some who trouble you
and want to distort the gospel of Christ.
But even if we or q an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you,
r let him be accursed.
As we have said before,
so now I say again:
If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received,
r let him be accursed.
For am I now seeking the approval of man,
or of God?
Or am I trying s to please man?
If I were still trying to please man,
I would not be a t servant 1 of Christ.
Verses 1-2 are really one proposition.
Paul is astonished that the Galatians are turning away from the one who called them to a perverted gospel.
If anyone preaches another gospel beside Paul's, he must be counted accursed.
Paul tells them this because he is seeking to please only God.
Paul, a God-called apostle, and other brothers, are writing to send grace and peace from the God who delivered them from the present evil age.
The Galatians must turn away from the perverted gospel because Paul is seeking to please only God.
