Actually, Paul clarifies this himself in the remainder of chapers 1 and 2.
But specifically, he means to say that it wasn't human beings who
commissioned him (OUK AP' ANQRWPWN) nor was it a human intermediary of
(divine) authority (OUDE DI' ANQRWPOU). Rather it was Jesus Christ himself
and God the father who raised him from the dead.
