The Us and Them

April 23, 2023


The story of Peter having the vision of clean and unclean animals and ultimately being led to Cornelius’ house. To Peter and other Jewish believers, God’s call for Israel to be holy was to be symbolized in the everyday acts of eating. However, through both his vision and subsequent witness of God pouring out the Holy Spirit upon those Gentiles, Peter realizes that “God shows no partiality but in every nation anyone who fears God and does what is right is acceptable to him.”
