Galatians 1:13-17 NLT

13 You know what I was like when I followed the Jewish religion—how I violently persecuted God’s church. I did my best to destroy it.
14 I was far ahead of my fellow Jews in my zeal for the traditions of my ancestors.
15 But even before I was born, God chose me and called me by his marvelous grace. Then it pleased him
16 to reveal his Son to mea so that I would proclaim the Good News about Jesus to the Gentiles. When this happened, I did not rush out to consult with any human being.b
