Abstract The phrase μή πως εἰς κενὸν τρέχω ἢ ἔδραμον in Galatians 2:2 represents an exegetical dilemma. It seems as if Paul expresses his fear that the leaders of the congregation in Jerusalem had the final say as far as his apostleship and missionary work were concerned, but this does not seem to be consistent with his rhetorical strategy in Galatians 1:1-2:10. In this article Paul's use of μή πως-phrases is investigated whereafter Galatians 2:2 is explained against the background of his rhetorical strategy in this part of the letter. It is suggested that Paul's use of the phrase μή πως εἰς κενὸν τρέχω ἢ ἔδραμον in Galatians 2:2 should be viewed as a weak point in his argumentative strategy.
