In Caesarea, a Gentile but God-fearing Roman centurion named Cornelius has a vision in which he is told to send for Peter who is staying in Joppa. As he prays before the noon meal, Peter also has a vision, the substance of which is God saying to him that no animal is unclean, much after the fashion of what Jesus taught in Mark 5. Peter is now prepared for the arrival of the centurion’s servants already sent to bring Peter to Caesarea.

Acts 11:1-18 Peter Reports to the Church about Gentiles receiving Christ

It was not long before the “apostles and brothers” in Jerusalem heard that Gentiles had received the “word of God.” Upon Peter’s return to Jerusalem the “circumcision party” criticizes him for fraternizing with Gentiles, thus provoking a defense and explanation from Peter.

Acts 36 The Church in Antioch Acts 11:19-30

Acts 12:1–5 James Killed and Peter Imprisoned

Herod Agrippa 1 ruled from AD 41–44 and considered himself Jewish and attended the morning and evening sacrifices at the temple regularly. His desire to please the Jews resulted in his persecution of the followers of Jesus in Jerusalem. He killed the apostle, James Zebedee, with “the sword,” and arrested Peter, placed him in ‘maximum’ security with 16 soldiers guarding. Meanwhile the “church” was praying for him.

Acts 12:1–5 James Killed and Peter Imprisoned

Acts 12:6–25 Peter is Rescued and the Death of Herod

An angel of the Lord rescues Peter without the sixteen Roman guards even being aware of it. Peter heads for the home of Mary where believers are present and when inside Peter requests that “James and the brothers” be told about what happened then leaves to parts unknown. Then follows the story of Herod, who falls prey to a terrible illness, only described as “eaten by worms,” a common idiom meaning dying badly due to an invasive disease

Acts 13:1-12 Barnabas and Saul Sent Off and Barnabas and Saul on Cyprus

At Antioch were prophets and teachers: Barnabas, Saul, a black man from North Africa, an Arab, and a Roman; thus the diversity of the early church. The Holy Spirit calls Barnabas and Saul to that which “I have called them.” Off the two go to Cyprus, and run into a Jewish false prophet named Elymas, meaning magician opposes them, and Saul miraculously causes the magician to go blind. This event has a major impact on proconsul Sergius Paulus, and Luke reports that he “believed.”

Acts 13:13–33 Paul and Barnabas in Antioch of Pisidia

Paul and his companions left Cyprus and arrived at Perga in Pamphylia (modern day Turkey) and from Perga they went to Antioch in Pisidia. The missionaries visit the synagogue in Antioch and are invited to speak. Paul then proceeds to preach a sermon showing how the Old Testament looked forward to someone in the line of David to be the Savior/Messiah and that John the Baptist, who was widely considered a prophet, pointed to Jesus as the long awaited Savior.

Acts 41 Paul and Barnabas in Antioch of Pisidia part 2 Acts 13:34–43

Paul speaks to a mostly Jewish audience and quotes from the Hebrew Bible passages about resurrection: Psalm 2, Isaiah 53:3, and Psalm 16:10. David died and saw corruption (of his body), but Jesus rose from the dead, and His body did not experience corruption. And in Jesus there is forgiveness of sin, which forms the core of Paul’s message. The Law of Moses serves to show us our condition, which is hopeless. The power of the Holy Spirit is present as the hearers “beg” to hear more.
