<088> Thesis: All intermediate objectives get their legitimacy from the Ultimate Objective. Introduction: As we come down to Galatians 2:10, we seem to come to a conclusion of an exceedingly important body of truth by way of what many would call an "odd" end. In the paragraph of which verse ten is the conclusion, the point is that the Gospel as Paul preached it was accepted in Jerusalem by the Church at large and by James (the perceived ringleader of the opposition), Cephas (the perceived ringleader of the Church itself), and John (the one apostle whose name addressed the issue involved). According to Paul's description, these men were the pillars of the Church and its Truth. So, the question naturally arises: What does Paul's statement regarding the request that he "remember the poor" and his "high level of commitment to do so" have to do with this thesis?
