Galatians 2:8 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

He that wrought effectually (ὁ ἐνεργήσας)

See on 1 Thessalonians 2:13. Rev. omits effectually, but it is fairly implied in the verb. Comp. 1 Corinthians 12:6; Philippians 2:13; Colossians 1:29. The reference is to God, not to Christ.

In Peter (Πέτρῳ)

Better, for Peter. In Peter would be ἐν Πέτρῳ.

Unto the apostleship (εἰς)

Not merely with reference to the apostleship, but with the design of making him an apostle. Comp. 2 Corinthians 2:12; Colossians 1:29. Observe how Paul puts himself on an equality with Peter.

Unto the Gentiles (εἰς τὰ ἔθνη)

To make me an apostle to the Gentiles.
