A gospel not of human origin (Gal. 1:11)


I want you to know,

That the gospel

That was preached

By me

Is not of human origin.”

γνωρίζω γὰρ ὑμῖν, ἀδελφοί, τὸ εὐαγγέλιον τὸ εὐαγγελισθὲν ὑπ’ ἐμοῦ ὅτι οὐκ ἔστιν κατὰ ἄνθρωπον·

Paul said, “Brothers (ἀδελφοί)!  I want you to know (γνωρίζω γὰρ ὑμῖν), that the gospel (τὸ εὐαγγέλιον) that was preached by me (τὸ εὐαγγελισθὲν ὑπ’ ἐμοῦ) is not of human origin (ὅτι οὐκ ἔστιν κατὰ ἄνθρωπον).”  Paul clarified his position.  He defended himself as he called these Galatians believing brothers.  He wanted them to know that the gospel that he preached did not have human origins.  It was not man-made or his own personal gospel.  This was the gospel of Jesus Christ as revealed to him.  Do you believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ?
