When did Paul go up again to Jerusalem?

Galatians 2:1 (ESV)

1 Then after fourteen years I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, taking Titus along with me.

Though it is possible that the fourteen years could follow Paul’s previous Jerusalem visit (Galatians 1:18–19), it is more likely to be fourteen years after Paul’s conversion.1 This would mean that there was an interval of at least 10 years between Paul’s Jerusalem visits, a long passage of time.2
