When I tell someone how Galatians mentions the two active Gospels, I get incredible push-back from those who
But on the contrary, when they saw that the gospel for the uncircumcised had been committed to me, as the gospel for the circumcised was to Peter (for He who worked effectively in Peter for the apostleship to the circumcised also worked effectively in me toward the Gentiles), and when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that had been given to me, they gave me and Barnabas the right hand of fellowship, that we should go to the Gentiles and they to the circumcised. Gal. 2:7-9
Here’s basically what happens and what’s said every time:
Once they angrily open a Bible and read the passage, they say, “It doesn’t mean there were two Gospels! There’s only one Gospel!”
No. Many Gospels.
My reply is, of course, “Many Gospels have existed over time. For example, Noah received the Gospel that he and his family would be saved if he built a big boat. Abraham received the Gospel that if he walked with God and was blameless, he would receive an amazing heritage.”
Their reply is typically, “Well, yes, there have been many different Gospels over the years.”
Then they realize what they just said and immediately spit out, “But only ONE Gospel has existed since Jesus was crucified!”
Two were in place at the same time, according to Paul 2,000 years ago. But maybe you have a special God-breathed word of knowledge that Paul wasn’t privy to.
