“And I went up by revelation, and communicated to them that gospel which I preach among the Gentiles, but privately to those who were of reputation, lest by any means I might run, or had run, in vain. Yet not even Titus who was with me, being a Greek, was compelled to be circumcised.” Galatians 2:2-3 It would be easy to run right past verse 3 in this context but it would be a huge mistake. It’s a very important verse. Why? It’s important because this verse strikes at the very heart of Paul’s letter to the Galatians. In those days with what Paul was doing there wasn’t a more controversial issue than the one in verse 3! “Not even Titus, being a Greek, was compelled to be circumcised.” This very thing was one of the key reasons the Jews and even some of the Gentiles hated Paul. In fact the entire letter to the Galatians was written to address a growing problem with the new Gentile believers there.
