1NOW the apostles and the brothers who were in Judaea heard that the gentiles also had received God's message.

2So when Peter next visited Jerusalem the circumcisionparty were full of criticism,

3saying to him, "You actually went in and shared a meal with uncircumcised men!"

4But Peter began to explain how the situation had actually arisen.

5"I was in the city of Joppa praying," he said, "and while completely unconscious of my surroundings I saw a visionsomething like a great sheet coming down towards me, let down from heaven by its four comers. It came right down to me

6and when I looked at it closely I saw animals and wild beasts reptiles and birds.

7Then I heard a voice say to me, 'Get up, Peter, kill and eat.'

8But I said, 'Never, Lord, for nothing common or unclean has ever passed my lips.'

9But the voice from Heaven spoke a second time and said, 'You must not call what God has cleansed common.'

10This happened three times, and then the whole thing was drawn up again into heaven.

11The extraordinary thing is that at that very moment three men arrived at the house where we were staying, sent to me personally from Caesarea.

12The Spirit told me to go with these men without any misgiving. And these six of our brothers accompanied me and we went into the man's house.

13He told us how he had seen the angel standing in his house, saying, 'Send to Joppa and bring Simon, surnamed Peter.

14He will give you a message which will save both you and your whole household.'

15While I was beginning to tell them this message the Holy Spirit fell upon them just as on us at the beginning.

16There came into my mind the words of our Lord when he said, 'John indeed baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.'

17If then God gave to them exactly the same gift as he gave to us when we believed on the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I to try to hinder the working of God?"

18When they heard this they had no further objection to raise. And they praised God, saying, "Then obviously God has given to the gentiles also the gift of repentance which leads to life"

19Now those who bed been dispersed by the persecution which arose over Stephen traveled as far as Phoenicia, Cyprus and Antioch, giving the message as they went to Jews only.

20However among their number were natives of Cyprus and Cyrene, and these men, on their arrival at Antioch, proclaimed their message to the Greeks as well, telling them the good news of the Lord Jesus.

21The hand of the Lord was with them, and a great number believed and turned to the Lord.

22News of these things came to the ears of the Church in Jerusalem and they sent Barnabas to Antioch.

23When he arrived and saw this working of God's grace, he was delighted. He urged them all to be resolute in their faithfulness to the Lord,

24for he was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith. So it happened that a considerable number of people became followers of the Lord.

25Then Barnabas went to Tarsus to find Saul.

26When he found, him he brought him to Antioch. Then for a whole year they met together with the Church and taught a large crowd. It was in Antioch that the disciples were first given the name of "Christians".

27During this period some prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch.

28One of them by the name of Agabus stood up and foretold by the Spirit that thee was to be a great famine throughout the world. (This actually happened in the days of Claudius.)

29The disciples determined to send relief to the brothers in Judaea, each contributing as he was able.

30This they did, sending their contribution to the elders there personally through Barnabas and Saul.
