1 1 Straight after the salutation, 6 He reprehendeth the Galatians for revolting, 9 from his Gospel, 15 which he received from God, 17 before he had communicated with any of the Apostles.
1 Paul [a]an Apostle (not [b]of men, neither by [c]man, but by [d]Jesus Christ, and God the Father which hath raised him from the dead.)
2 And all the brethren which are with me unto the Churches of Galatia:
Galatians 1:1A salutation comprehending in few words, the sum of the Apostle’s doctrine, and also besides straightway from the beginning, showing the gravity meet for the authority of an Apostle, which he had to maintain against the false apostles.
Galatians 1:1He showeth who is the author of the minister generally: for herein the whole ministry agreeth, that whether they be Apostles, or Shepherds, or Doctors, they are appointed of God.
Galatians 1:1He toucheth the instrumental cause: for this is a peculiar prerogative to the Apostles, to be called immediately from Christ.
Galatians 1:1Christ no doubt is man, but he is God also, and head of the Church, and in this respect to be exempted out of the number of men.
