Title: Pleasing God or Pleasing People?
Subtitle: Defending the Gospel in Galatians 1-2

Abstract :
Scholars agree that in Gal 1,13-2,21 Paul substantiates his gospel but disagree as to his method. The three common views: that Paul defends his apostolate, that he denies accusations, and that he functions as a paradigm conflict with the text. Instead, Paul sets up two categories in 1,10 — that of seeking to please people and that of seeking to please God — and defends his gospel by means of his Damascus experience together with his subsequent life motivation.
