Peter Tells The Church About Saved Gentiles

Peter recounted his experience in Acts 10 about receiving a vision from God about eating unclean animals and the redemption of Cornelius, a Gentile. This surprised many of the disciples in the church because most of them had Jewish backgrounds and only preached the word to other Jews.

This is the turning point when we start to see God’s salvation expand beyond the Jews and onto the rest of the world.

The Origin of the Word Christian

Just wanted to share an interesting tidbit—the disciples in Antioch were first called Christians.

I’m not sure what the disciples called themselves before the origin of the word Christian. Disciples of Jesus? Followers of Christ?

Either way, this was quite fascinating to me.
