Bible: Galatians 1:16-24

1:16 to reveal his Son in 1  me so that I could preach him 2  among the Gentiles, I did not go to ask advice from 3  any human being, 4  1:17 nor did I go up to Jerusalem 5  to see those who were apostles before me, but right away I departed to Arabia, 6  and then returned to Damascus.

1:18 Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem 7  to visit Cephas 8  and get information from him, 9  and I stayed with him fifteen days. 1:19 But I saw none of the other apostles 10  except James the Lord’s brother. 1:20 I assure you 11  that, before God, I am not lying about what I am writing to you! 12  1:21 Afterward I went to the regions of Syria and Cilicia. 1:22 But I was personally 13  unknown to the churches of Judea that are in Christ. 1:23 They were only hearing, “The one who once persecuted us is now proclaiming the good news 14  of the faith he once tried to destroy.” 1:24 So 15  they glorified God because of me. 16
