Galatians 1 Verse 12

12 For I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it, but I received it through a revelation of Jesus Christ. 13[1]

Paul makes it very clear here that this message he carries did not come from any man. He received the gospel directly from Christ Himself. When we look back at Paul’s journey to Damascus, he is stopped by a blinding light, as Christ appears, and questions Paul about why does he persecute Christians? Through this exchange, Paul gives himself to Christ and changes his ways. He also makes a reference in 1 Corinthians 15:8 how finally Christ appears to him. This further clarifies that Paul did not learn the gospel from any of the apostles, but directly from Christ. Ensuring no corruption of doctrine, and a giving Paul the proper message to take forth. From then on, Paul proves himself as being a worthy apostle carrying the gospel to far lands and writing 2/3 of the New Testament.
