Galatians 1:19-24 MSG

19 Except for our Master's brother James, I saw no other apostles.
20 (I'm telling you the absolute truth in this.)
21 Then I began my ministry in the regions of Syria and Cilicia.
22 After all that time and activity I was still unknown by face among the Christian churches in Judea.
23 There was only this report: "That man who once persecuted us is now preaching the very message he used to try to destroy."
24 Their response was to recognize and worship God because of me!
