Galatians 1:1 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
1:1 Paul, an apostle - Here it was necessary for St. Paul to assert his authority; otherwise he is very modest in the use of this title.

Dear brothers and sisters, I want you to understand that the gospel message I preach is not based on mere human reasoning.
I received my message from no human source, and no one taught me. Instead, I received it by direct revelation from Jesus Christ.
