Galatians 1:11

Which was preached (to euaggelisqen). Play on the word euaggelion by first aorist passive participle of euaggelizw, "the gospel which was gospelized by me." It is not after man (ouk estin kata anqrwpon). Not after a human standard and so he does not try to conform to the human ideal. Paul alone ( 1 Corinthians 3:3 ; 1 Corinthians 9:8 ; 1 Corinthians 15:32 ; Romans 3:15 ) in the N.T. uses this old and common idiom.
