Galatians 1:11-17

Lamsa(i) 11 But I want you to know, my brethren, the gospel that I preached was not from men. 12 For I did not receive it nor learn it from man, but through the revelation of Jesus Christ. 13 You have heard of the manner of my life in time past in the JewsÆ religion, how beyond measure I persecuted the Church of God and tried to destroy it: 14 And how that I was far more advanced in the JewsÆ religion than many of my age among the people of my race for above all, I was especially zealous for the doctrines of my forefathers. 15 But when it pleased God, who had chosen me from my birth, and called me by his grace, 16 To reveal his Son to me, that I might preach him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately disclose it to any human being: 17 Neither did I go up to Jerusalem to them who had been apostles before me; but instead I went to Arabia and returned again to Damascus.
