Context Readings

Paul Defends His Apostleship

4 if he that is come to you, preaches another Jesus whom I have not preached, or if ye receive other gifts of the spirit, than what ye have received from me, or another gospel, than what you have accepted, you might well bear with his pretensions: 5 for I think I am not at all inferior to the chiefest of the apostles. 6 if my language is inelegant, my knowledge is not contemptible; but has been fully display'd among you on all occasions.
