Gal 2:20 is a short passage in a letter written by the Apostle Paul to a group of people who followed Jesus in what is now Turkey. In the King James Version, the letter is called “The Epistle of Paul to the Galatians,” and is one of thirteen letters that are attributed to Paul. In his letter to the Galatians, Paul’s reference to the love of Jesus comes in the middle of a dispute with another apostle named Peter, who changed his mind about whether he could share a meal with other people who followed Jesus but did not share Jewish ethnicity. Paul thought that Jews and non-Jews could eat together when they both were followers of Jesus and condemned Peter as a sinner for changing his mind on that issue. Perhaps Du Vernet saw Peter’s activity in Galatians 2 as being similar to “facing both ways,” and so gave a sermon on the topic in front of Thomas Bunyan.
