but it was three years before I went up to Jerusalem to compare stories with Peter. I was there only fifteen days - but what days they were!
Except for our Master's brother James, I saw no other apostles.
(I'm telling you the absolute truth in this.)
Then I began my ministry in the regions of Syria and Cilicia.
After all that time and activity I was still unknown by face among the Christian churches in Judea.
There was only this report: "That man who once persecuted us is now preaching the very message he used to try to destroy."
Their response was to recognize and worship God because of me!
