"WHEN CEPHAS CAME 10 ANTIOCH, I OPPOSED HIM TO HIS FACE, BECAUSE HE STOOD CONDEMNED. FOR BEFORE CEIITAIN PEOPLE CAME FROM jAMES, HE USED 10 EAT WITH THE GENTILES. BUT WHEN THEY ARRIVED, HE BEGAN 10 DRAW BACK AND SEPARATE HIMSELF FROM THE GENTILES BECAUSE HE WAS AFRAID OF THOSE WHO BELONGED TO THE CIRCUMCISION GROUP. THE OTHER jEWS JOINED HIM IN HIS HYPOCRIS.: SO THAT BY THEIR HYPOCRISY EVEN BARNABAS WAS LED ASTRAY. WHEN I SAW THAT THEY WERE NOT ACTING IN LINE WITH THE TRUTH OF THE GOSPEL I SAID 10 CEPHAS IN FROM OF THEM ALL 'YOU ARE A jEW, YET YOU UVE LIKE A GENTILE AND NOT LIKE A jEW. HOW IS IT, THEN, THAT YOU FORCE GENTILES TO FOLLOW jEWISH CUSTOMS?" • , ·'· I ·. I I ·. I 1\ _: I I I~
