“The Jerusalem Meeting”—Some Jews are teaching that Gentiles must be circumcision in order to come to Christ. To address the question, the apostles and Jerusalem elders gather. Peter recounts the events leading up to the conversion of Cornelius, emphasizing God’s approval. James lends Biblical perspective, quoting from Amos—a foretelling of God’s acceptance of all people. A letter is composed to allay troubles caused by Judaizers.
