Galatians 1:19-24 NIRV

19 I didn't see any of the other apostles. I only saw James, the Lord's brother.
20 Here is what you can be sure of. And God gives witness to it. What I am writing you is not a lie.
21 Later I went to Syria and Cilicia.
22 The members of Christ's churches in Judea did not know me in a personal way.
23 They only heard others say, "The man who used to attack us has changed. He is now preaching the faith he once tried to destroy."
24 And they praised God because of me.
