Galatians 2:6

Galatians 2:11

Context
Paul Rebukes Peter

2:11 But when Cephas 6  came to Antioch, 7  I opposed him to his face, because he had clearly done wrong. 8 

1 tn Or “influential leaders.” BDAG 255 s.v. δοκέω 2.a.β has “the influential men Gal 2:2, 6b. A fuller expr. w. the same mng., w. inf. added…vss. 6a, 9.” This refers to the leadership of the Jerusalem church.

2 tn Grk “God does not receive the face of man,” an idiom for showing favoritism or partiality (BDAG 887-88 s.v. πρόσωπον 1.b.α; L&N 88.238).

3 tn Or “influential people”; here “leaders” was used rather than “people” for stylistic reasons, to avoid redundancy with the word “people” in the previous parenthetical remark. See also the note on the word “influential” at the beginning of this verse.

4 tn Or “contributed.” This is the same word translated “go to ask advice from” in 1:16, but it has a different meaning here; see L&N 59.72.

5 tn Or “added nothing to my authority.” Grk “added nothing to me,” with what was added (“message,” etc.) implied.

6 sn Cephas. This individual is generally identified with the Apostle Peter (L&N 93.211).

7 map For location see JP1 F2; JP2 F2; JP3 F2; JP4 F2.

8 tn Grk “because he stood condemned.”
