Galatians 1:15-24 New International Version

15  But when God, who set me apart from my mother's womb and called me by his grace, was pleased 16  to reveal his Son in me so that I might preach him among the Gentiles, my immediate response was not to consult any human being. 17  I did not go up to Jerusalem to see those who were apostles before I was, but I went into Arabia. Later I returned to Damascus. 18  Then after three years, I went up to Jerusalem to get acquainted with Cephas[1] and stayed with him fifteen days. 19  I saw none of the other apostles-only James, the Lord's brother. 20  I assure you before God that what I am writing you is no lie. 21  Then I went to Syria and Cilicia. 22  I was personally unknown to the churches of Judea that are in Christ. 23  They only heard the report: "The man who formerly persecuted us is now preaching the faith he once tried to destroy." 24  And they praised God because of me.
