Chapter Summary

Paul insists that his apostolic authority came, not from men nor through any man, but directly through Jesus Christ, and from God who had raised the Christ from among the spirits of the dead where supernatural forces are in control. He proceeds to point out his lack of contacts with the apostles, and that on the few occasions he had for such contacts they "contributed nothing new" to him. Finally author concludes the meaning for the word ένερϒέω as ?to infuse with supernatural spirit or to possess? and καταργ δω as to render powerless. All the way through the correspondent's course of argument the opposing forces of Satan and God, evil and good, falsehood and truth are shown in eschatological imagery.
