Galatians 2:12

MKJV 12 For before some came from James, he ate with the nations. But whenthey came, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing those of the circumcision.
These are my thoughts, please share yours.
The nations mean the Gentiles. James ate with the Gentileswhich were not done because of him being Jewish, clean they saw Gentiles as unclean,and most likely the food they ate. The Gentiles would let James eat with thembut James would do the same for them, James wanted to please his friendsinstead of doing what is right. James because of this would not be the one Godwould call to share the gospel with the nations.
