18 After three years I went to Jerusalem to meet Peter and stayed with him for fifteen days.
19 I met no other apostles, except James, the brother of the Lord.
20 God knows that these things I write are not lies.
21 Later, I went to the areas of Syria and Cilicia.
22 In Judea the churches in Christ had never met me.
23 They had only heard it said, "This man who was attacking us is now preaching the same faith that he once tried to destroy."
24 And these believers praised God because of me.
