v. 11 But when Cephas came to Antioch, I
opposed him to his face, because he stood
v. 12 For before certain men came from James,
he was eating with the Gentiles; but when they
came he drew back and separated himself,
fearing the circumcision party.
v. 13 And the rest of the Jews acted hypocritically
along with him, so that even Barnabas was led
astray by their hypocrisy.
v. 14 But when I saw that their conduct was not
in step with the truth of the gospel, I said to
Cephas before them all, “If you, though a Jew,
live like a Gentile and not like a Jew, how can
you force the Gentiles to live like Jews?”
v. 15 We ourselves are Jews by birth and not
v. 16 yet we know that a person is not justified by
works of the law but through faith in Jesus
Christ, so we also have believed in Christ Jesus,
in order to be justified by faith in Christ and not
by works of the law, because by works of the law
no one will be justified.
This is the Word of the Lord
Thanks be to God!

2 Peter 1:2-4 (ESV)
May grace and peace be multiplied to you in
the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. His
divine power has granted to us all things that pertain
to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him
who called us to his own glory and excellence, by
which he has granted to us his precious and very
great promises, so that through them you may
become partakers of the divine nature, having
escaped from the corruption that is in the world
because of sinful desire.
