The apostle Paul has been setting before the Galatian churches a defense of the gospel he proclaimed to them. In the last paragraph we learned that the troublers are saying that Paul is pleasing people (1:10) by weakening the gospel message. They are saying that he has taken elements out of the gospel to bring in the Gentiles… Paul is correcting this problem by proving that the gospel he proclaimed is not from man, but by the direct revelation of Jesus. Further, his gospel is accurate, so much so that anyone who declares a message containing anything different than what he proclaimed is accursed. As Paul proclaims this gospel message to the Galatians, we are learning what the gospel message is and how the gospel is to affect and change our lives.
