Acts 11:1-18 | Misunderstood Mission | March 29, 2015

Peter returns from Caesarea to be questioned by believers within the community that think they have God figured out.  They challenge Peter’s interaction with the non-Jewish Christians and his failure (from their perspective) in converting them culturally to the Jewish customs and regulations prior to their conversion to Christianity.  This caused Peter to gently encourage the church to revisit the mission God had given.  Specifically how that mission was accomplished and what role the church is designed to play.  The end conclusion: the gospel is for all men, not only for Jews and those who convert to Judaism.
