Galatians 5:11 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

11 As for me, brothers, if I am still preaching circumcision,[a] why am I still being persecuted? In that case, the stumbling block of the cross has been abolished.

Footnotes:

  1. 5:11 Preaching circumcision: this could refer to Paul’s pre-Christian period (possibly as a missionary for Judaism); more probably it arose as a charge from opponents, based perhaps on the story in Acts 16:1–3 that Paul had circumcised Timothy “on account of the Jews.” Unlike the Gentile Titus in Gal 2:3, Timothy was the son of a Jewish mother. The stumbling block of the cross: cf. 1 Cor 1:23.
