Central idea: A Gospel that is divine, not man-made or man-taught, but revealed directly by Christ to our hearts, is powerful enough to transform the hearts of the worst sinners. Summary: In Galatians 1:11-2:10, Paul clearly shows that contrary to the thoughts of many in that day and this day, the Gospel is not man made. It is a divine Gospel, only being made known through the revelation of Christ. And being divine, it has the power to completely transform our lives: turning even the most unlikely candidates of heaven into the most powerful and effective Apostles. Once we see the revealed Christ, we will be impelled to go out and preach the Gospel to those that Christ has entrusted us to preach to.

Galatians
Galatians 1:11-2:10
NT
esv
For I would have you know, brothers, that the gospel that was preached by me is not man's gospel.
For I did not receive it from any man,
nor was I taught it,
alternative
but I received it through a revelation of Jesus Christ.
negativepositive
ground
For you have heard of my former life in Judaism,
how I persecuted the church of God violently
and tried to destroy it.
progression
ideaexplanation
And I was advancing in Judaism beyond many of my own age among my people,
so extremely zealous was I for the traditions of my fathers.
But when he who had set me apart before I was born,
and who called me by his grace,
was pleased to reveal his Son to me,
in order that I might preach him among the Gentiles,
actionpurpose
I did not immediately consult with anyone;
nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me,
but I went away into Arabia,
and returned again to Damascus.
situationresponse
Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to visit Cephas
and remained with him fifteen days.
But I saw none of the other apostles except James the Lord's brother.
(In what I am writing to you, before God, I do not lie!)
series
Then I went into the regions of Syria and Cilicia.
And I was still unknown in person to the churches of Judea that are in Christ.
They only were hearing it said, "He who used to persecute us is now preaching the faith he once tried to destroy."
And they glorified God because of me.
inference
Then after fourteen years I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, taking Titus along with me.
I went up because of a revelation
and set before them (though privately before those who seemed influential) the gospel that I proclaim among the Gentiles,
in order to make sure I was not running
or had not run in vain.
But even Titus, who was with me, was not forced to be circumcised,
though he was a Greek.
concessive
Yet because of false brothers secretly brought in--
who slipped in to spy out our freedom that we have in Christ Jesus,
so that they might bring us into slavery--
to them we did not yield in submission even for a moment,
so that the truth of the gospel might be preserved for you.
And from those who seemed to be influential
(what they were makes no difference to me;
God shows no partiality)--
those, I say, who seemed influential added nothing to me.
On the contrary, when they saw that I had been entrusted with the gospel to the uncircumcised,
just as Peter had been entrusted with the gospel to the circumcised
comparison
(for he who worked through Peter for his apostolic ministry to the circumcised
worked also through me for mine to the Gentiles),
and when James and Cephas and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given to me,
[therefore] they gave the right hand of fellowship to Barnabas and me,
[in order] that we should go to the Gentiles
and they to the circumcised.
Only, they asked us to remember the poor,
the very thing I was eager to do.
