0 Galatians : Absurdity

My temptation which was in my flesh ye despised not, nor rejected; but received me as an angel of God, even as Christ Jesus. 4:14

Trivia: According to Galatians 4:14, who had a temptation in the flesh?

Galatians : Absurdity (8)

  1. If you do what other people want, you're not a good Christian. 1:10
  2. Paul's gospel was not derived from the other gospels. It was revealed directly to him by God. (And it shows too. Paul knew nothing about the life and sayings of Jesus in the Gospels.) 1:11-12
  3. Jesus was cursed by God. 3:13
  4. "Brethren, I beseech you, be as I am." Forget Jesus. Be like Paul. 4:12
  5. "If ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing."
    (You can't be saved if you're circumcised?) 5:2
  6. "I would they were even cut off which trouble you." Gosh, that doesn't sound very nice. But I wonder what Paul meant by "cut off". The New Revised Standard Version translates this verse as: "I wish those who unsettle you would castrate themselves!" 5:12
  7. "See how large a letter I have written unto you with mine own hand."
    Paul was proud of his large handwriting. 6:11
  8. "Many ... desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh." Seems like a strange thing to glory in. But OK. 6:12-13
