Acts - Chapter 11
  • 1. Now the apostles and brethren who were in Judea heard that the Gentiles had also received the word of God.
  • 2. And when Peter came up to Jerusalem, those of the circumcision contended with him,
  • 3. saying, "You went in to uncircumcised men and ate with them!"
  • 4. But Peter explained it to them in order from the beginning, saying:
  • 5. "I was in the city of Joppa praying; and in a trance I saw a vision, an object descending like a great sheet, let down from heaven by four corners; and it came to me.
  • 6. When I observed it intently and considered, I saw four-footed animals of the earth, wild beasts, creeping things, and birds of the air.
  • 7. And I heard a voice saying to me, 'Rise, Peter; kill and eat.'
  • 8. But I said, 'Not so, Lord! For nothing common or unclean has at any time entered my mouth.'
  • 9. But the voice answered me again from heaven, 'What God has cleansed you must not call common.'
  • 10. Now this was done three times, and all were drawn up again into heaven.
  • 11. At that very moment, three men stood before the house where I was, having been sent to me from Caesarea.
  • 12. Then the Spirit told me to go with them, doubting nothing. Moreover these six brethren accompanied me, and we entered the man's house.
  • 13. And he told us how he had seen an angel standing in his house, who said to him, 'Send men to Joppa, and call for Simon whose surname is Peter,
  • 14. who will tell you words by which you and all your household will be saved.'
  • 15. And as I began to speak, the Holy Spirit fell upon them, as upon us at the beginning.
  • 16. Then I remembered the word of the Lord, how He said, 'John indeed baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit.'
  • 17. If therefore God gave them the same gift as He gave us when we believed on the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I that I could withstand God?"
  • 18. When they heard these things they became silent; and they glorified God, saying, "Then God has also granted to the Gentiles repentance to life."
  • 19. Now those who were scattered after the persecution that arose over Stephen traveled as far as Phoenicia, Cyprus, and Antioch, preaching the word to no one but the Jews only.
  • 20. But some of them were men from Cyprus and Cyrene, who, when they had come to Antioch, spoke to the Hellenists, preaching the Lord Jesus.
  • 21. And the hand of the Lord was with them, and a great number believed and turned to the Lord.
  • 22. Then news of these things came to the ears of the church in Jerusalem, and they sent out Barnabas to go as far as Antioch.
  • 23. When he came and had seen the grace of God, he was glad, and encouraged them all that with purpose of heart they should continue with the Lord.
  • 24. For he was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith. And a great many people were added to the Lord.
  • 25. Then Barnabas departed for Tarsus to seek Saul.
  • 26. And when he had found him, he brought him to Antioch. So it was that for a whole year they assembled with the church and taught a great many people. And the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch.
  • 27. And in these days prophets came from Jerusalem to Antioch.
  • 28. Then one of them, named Agabus, stood up and showed by the Spirit that there was going to be a great famine throughout all the world, which also happened in the days of Claudius Caesar.
  • 29. Then the disciples, each according to his ability, determined to send relief to the brethren dwelling in Judea.
  • 30. This they also did, and sent it to the elders by the hands of Barnabas and Saul.
