Bible: Galatians 1:13-17

1:13 For you have heard of my former way of life 1  in Judaism, how I was savagely persecuting the church of God and trying to destroy it. 1:14 I 2  was advancing in Judaism beyond many of my contemporaries in my nation, 3  and was 4  extremely zealous for the traditions of my ancestors. 5  1:15 But when the one 6  who set me apart from birth 7  and called me by his grace was pleased 1:16 to reveal his Son in 8  me so that I could preach him 9  among the Gentiles, I did not go to ask advice from 10  any human being, 11  1:17 nor did I go up to Jerusalem 12  to see those who were apostles before me, but right away I departed to Arabia, 13  and then returned to Damascus.
