Galatians 2:1 The Gospel Not Bondage to the Law SUMMARY OF GALATIANS 2: Paul's Later Journey to Jerusalem. The Object of the Visit, Titus with Him, but Uncircumcised. Peter, James, and John Apostles to the Circumcision; Paul and. Barnabas to the Uncircumcision. The Right Hand of Fellowship. The Rebuke of Peter at Antioch. Justified by Faith in Christ; Not by Works of the Law. Then fourteen years after I went up again to Jerusalem. "Three years after" his conversion he went up to Jerusalem (Galatians 1:18); fourteen years after, he went up again. If his conversion took place about AD 37, as is generally supposed, the visit now spoken of was in AD 51. At that time we find that Paul and Barnabas and "certain others" went up to Jerusalem to see the apostles and elders about this very question of the relation of the Gentile Christians to Judaism. See Acts 15:1. That this is the visit Paul means, is evident (1) because it is the right date; (2) the right persons are present, viz.: Paul, Barnabas, Peter and James, and (3) the right question is the one discussed. One visit took place in AD 40 (Galatians 1:10 Ac 9:22,23). Another, to carry relief at a time of famine, took place in AD 44 (Acts 11:30 12:25); and the third, here referred to, took place in AD 50 or 51. Took Titus with [me]. Titus is not named in Acts, but only that "certain other" went with Paul and Barnabas (Acts 15:2).
