1 From Paul, an apostle. I was not chosen to be an apostle by human beings, nor was I sent from human beings. I was made an apostle through Jesus Christ and God the Father who raised Jesus from the dead.
2 This letter is also from all those of God's familyn who are with me.
3 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
4 Jesus gave himself for our sins to free us from this evil world we live in, as God the Father planned.
5 The glory belongs to God forever and ever. Amen.
