    Ga 1:18

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:1

    ¶ Despus, pasados catorce aos, fui otra vez a Jerusaln juntamente con Bernab, tomando tambin conmigo a Tito.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Galatians 2:1

    Verse 1. Then fourteen years after] There is a considerable difference among critics concerning the
    time specified in this verse; the apostle is however generally supposed to refer to the journey he took to Jerusalem, about the question of circumcision, mentioned in Acts xv. 4-5, &c. These years, says Dr. Whitby, must be reckoned from the time of his conversion, mentioned here chap. i. 18, which took place A.D. 35 (33;) his journey to Peter was A.D. 38 (36,) and then between that and the council of Jerusalem, assembled A.D. 49 (52,) will be fourteen intervening years. The dates in brackets are according to the chronology which I follow in the Acts of the Apostles. Dr. Whitby has some objections against this chronology, which may be seen in his notes.

    Others contend that the journey of which the apostle speaks is that mentioned Acts xi. 27, &c., when Barnabas and Saul were sent by the Church of Antioch with relief to the poor Christians in Judea; there being at that time a great dearth in that land. St. Luke's not mentioning Tit. in that journey is no valid objection against it: for he does not mention him in any part of his history, this being the first place in which his name occurs.

    And it does seem as if St. Paul did intend purposely to supply that defect, by his saying, I went up with Barnabas, and took Titus with me also. The former St. Luke relates, Acts xi. 30; the latter St. Paul supplies.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 1. Then fourteen years after I went up again to Jerusalem , etc..] That is, either after it pleased God to call him by his grace, and reveal his Son in him; or rather after he had been at Jerusalem to see Peter, with whom he stayed fifteen days, and then went into Syria and Cilicia; so that it was seventeen years after his conversion that he took this journey to Jerusalem he here speaks of; and he seems to refer to the time when he and Barnabas went from the church at Antioch to the apostles and elders about the question, whether circumcision was necessary to salvation, ( Acts 15:1,2) which entirely agrees with the account the apostle here gives of this journey, and which he went not alone, but with Barnabas: and took Titus with me also ; Barnabas is mentioned in Luke's account as going with him at this time, but Titus is not; who, though he was not sent by the church, yet the apostle might judge it proper and prudent to take him with him, who was converted by him, was a minister of the Gospel, and continued uncircumcised; and the rather he might choose to have him along with him, partly that he might be confirmed in the faith the apostle had taught him; and partly that he might be a living testimony of the agreement between the apostle's principles and practice; and that having him and Barnabas, he might have a competent number of witnesses to testify to the doctrines he preached, the miracles he wrought, and the success that attended him among the Gentiles; and to relate, upon their return, what passed between him and the elders at Jerusalem; for by the mouth of two or three witnesses everything is established.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-10 - Observe the
    apostle's faithfulness in giving a full account of the doctrine he had preached among the Gentiles, and was still resolved to preach, that of Christianity, free from all mixture of Judaism. Thi doctrine would be ungrateful to many, yet he was not afraid to own it His care was, lest the success of his past labours should be lessened or his future usefulness be hindered. While we simply depend upon God for success to our labours, we should use every proper caution to remove mistakes, and against opposers. There are things which ma lawfully be complied with, yet, when they cannot be done withou betraying the truth, they ought to be refused. We must not give plac to any conduct, whereby the truth of the gospel would be reflecte upon. Though Paul conversed with the other apostles, yet he did no receive any addition to his knowledge, or authority, from them Perceiving the grace given to him, they gave unto him and Barnabas the right hand of fellowship, whereby they acknowledged that he wa designed to the honour and office of an apostle as well as themselves They agreed that these two should go to the heathen, while the continued to preach to the Jews; judging it agreeable to the mind of Christ, so to divide their work. Here we learn that the gospel is no ours, but God's; and that men are but the keepers of it; for this we are to praise God. The apostle showed his charitable disposition, an how ready he was to own the Jewish converts as brethren, though man would scarcely allow the like favour to the converted Gentiles; but mere difference of opinion was no reason to him why he should not hel them. Herein is a pattern of Christian charity, which we should exten to all the disciples of Christ.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    1. Fourteen years after (dia dekatessarwn etwn). Rev. after the
    space of fourteen years. Comp. dij ejtwn pleionwn after several years, Acts xxiv. 17; dij hJmerwn after (some) days, Mark ii. 1. Dia means after, that is, a given number of years being interposed between two points of time. Not, in the course of (Rev. marg.).

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    2:1 {qen after the
    space of fourteen years I went up again} (epeita dia dekatessarwn etwn palin aneben) this use of dia for interval between is common enough. Paul is not giving a recital of his visits to Jerusalem, but of his points of contact with the apostles in Jerusalem. As already observed, he here refers to the Jerusalem Conference given by Luke in #Ac 15 when Paul and Barnabas were endorsed by the apostles and elders and the church over the protest of the Judaizers who had attacked them in Antioch (#Ac 15:1f.). But Paul passes by another visit to Jerusalem, that in #Ac 11:30 when Barnabas and Saul brought alms from Antioch to Jerusalem and delivered them to "the elders" with no mention of the apostles who were probably out of the city since the events in #Ac 12 apparently preceded that visit and Peter had left for another place (#Ac 12:17). Paul here gives the inside view of this private conference in Jerusalem that came in between the two public meetings (#Ac 15:4,6-29). {With Barnabas} (meta barnaba). As in #Ac 15:2. {Taking Titus also with me} (sunparalabwn kai titon). Second aorist active participle of sunparalambanw the very verb used in #Ac 15:37f. of the disagreement between Paul and Barnabas about Mark. Titus is not mentioned in Acts 15 nor anywhere else in Acts for some reason, possibly because he was Luke's own brother. But his very presence was a challenge to the Judaizers, since he was a Greek Christian.
