Galatians 2:2
I went up because of a revelation and presented to them the gospel I preach among the Gentiles-- but privately to those recognized [as leaders]-- so that I might not be running, or have run, in vain.

Now I consider myself in no way inferior to the "super-apostles."
2 Corinthians 11:21-23
I say this to [our] shame: we have been weak. But in whatever anyone dares [to boast]-- I am talking foolishly-- I also dare:
Are they Hebrews? So am I. Are they Israelites? So am I. Are they the seed of Abraham? So am I.
Are they servants of Christ? I'm talking like a madman-- I'm a better one: with far more labors, many more imprisonments, far worse beatings, near death many times.
2 Corinthians 12:11
I have become a fool; you forced it on me. I ought to have been recommended by you, since I am in no way inferior to the "super-apostles," even though I am nothing.

Galatians 2:11-14
But when Cephas came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face because he stood condemned.
For he used to eat with the Gentiles before certain men came from James. However, when they came, he withdrew and separated himself, because he feared those from the circumcision party.
Then the rest of the Jews joined his hypocrisy, so that even Barnabas was carried away by their hypocrisy.
But when I saw that they were deviating from the truth of the gospel, I told Cephas in front of everyone, "If you, who are a Jew, live like a Gentile and not like a Jew, how can you compel Gentiles to live like Jews?"

Job 32:17-22
I too will answer; yes, I will tell what I know.
For I am full of words, and my spirit compels me [to speak].
My heart is like unvented wine; it is about to burst like new wineskins.
I must speak so that I can find relief; I must open my lips and respond.
I will be partial to no one, and I will not give anyone an [undeserved] title.
For I do not know how to give [such] titles; otherwise, my Maker would remove me in an instant.
Matthew 22:16
They sent their disciples to Him, with the Herodians. "Teacher," they said, "we know that You are truthful and teach truthfully the way of God. You defer to no one, for You don't show partiality.
Mark 6:17-20
For Herod himself had given orders to arrest John and to chain him in prison on account of Herodias, his brother Philip's wife, whom he had married.
John had been telling Herod, "It is not lawful for you to have your brother's wife!"
So Herodias held a grudge against him and wanted to kill him. But she could not,
because Herod was in awe of John and was protecting him, knowing he was a righteous and holy man. When Herod heard him he would be very disturbed, yet would hear him gladly.
Mark 12:14
When they came, they said to Him, "Teacher, we know You are truthful and defer to no one, for You don't show partiality but teach truthfully the way of God. Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar or not?

[They asked] only that we would remember the poor, which I made every effort to do.
Acts 15:6-29
Then the apostles and the elders assembled to consider this matter.
After there had been much debate, Peter stood up and said to them: "Brothers, you are aware that in the early days God made a choice among you, that by my mouth the Gentiles would hear the gospel message and believe.
And God, who knows the heart, testified to them by giving the Holy Spirit, just as He also did to us.
He made no distinction between us and them, cleansing their hearts by faith.
Why, then, are you now testing God by putting on the disciples' necks a yoke that neither our forefathers nor we have been able to bear?
On the contrary, we believe we are saved through the grace of the Lord Jesus, in the same way they are."
Then the whole assembly fell silent and listened to Barnabas and Paul describing all the signs and wonders God had done through them among the Gentiles.
After they stopped speaking, James responded: "Brothers, listen to me!
Simeon has reported how God first intervened to take from the Gentiles a people for His name.
And the words of the prophets agree with this, as it is written:
After these things I will return and will rebuild David's tent, which has fallen down. I will rebuild its ruins and will set it up again,
so that those who are left of mankind may seek the Lord-- even all the Gentiles who are called by My name, says the Lord who does these things,
which have been known from long ago.
Therefore, in my judgment, we should not cause difficulties for those who turn to God from among the Gentiles,
but instead we should write to them to abstain from things polluted by idols, from sexual immorality, from eating anything that has been strangled, and from blood.
For since ancient times, Moses has had in every city those who proclaim him, and he is read aloud in the synagogues every Sabbath day."
Then the apostles and the elders, with the whole church, decided to select men from among them and to send them to Antioch with Paul and Barnabas: Judas, called Barsabbas, and Silas, both leading men among the brothers.
They wrote this letter to be delivered by them: From the apostles and the elders, your brothers, To the brothers from among the Gentiles in Antioch, Syria, and Cilicia: Greetings.
Because we have heard that some to whom we gave no authorization went out from us and troubled you with their words and unsettled your hearts,
we have unanimously decided to select men and send them to you along with our beloved Barnabas and Paul,
who have risked their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore we have sent Judas and Silas, who will personally report the same things by word of mouth.
For it was the Holy Spirit's decision-- and ours-- to put no greater burden on you than these necessary things:
that you abstain from food offered to idols, from blood, from eating anything that has been strangled, and from sexual immorality. If you keep yourselves from these things, you will do well. Farewell.
2 Corinthians 12:11
I have become a fool; you forced it on me. I ought to have been recommended by you, since I am in no way inferior to the "super-apostles," even though I am nothing.
