Galatians 2:13-15

Context
2:13 And the rest of the Jews also joined with him in this hypocrisy, so that even Barnabas was led astray with them 1  by their hypocrisy. 2:14 But when I saw that they were not behaving consistently with the truth of the gospel, I said to Cephas 2  in front of them all, “If you, although you are a Jew, live like a Gentile and not like a Jew, how can you try to force 3  the Gentiles to live like Jews?”

Jews and Gentiles are Justified by Faith

2:15 We are Jews by birth 4  and not Gentile sinners, 5
