Acts 11 - AMP

2 So when Peter went up to Jerusalem, the circumcision party found fault with him , 3 Saying, Why did you go to uncircumcised men and eat with them? 4 But Peter began and narrated and explained to them step by step . He said: 5 I was in the town of Joppa praying, and in a trance I saw a vision of something coming down from heaven, like a huge sheet lowered by the four corners; and it descended until it came to me. 6 Gazing intently and closely at it, I observed in it four-footed animals and wild beasts and reptiles of the earth and birds of the air, 7 And I heard a voice saying to me, Get up, Peter; kill and eat. 8 But I said, No, by no means, Lord; for nothing common or unhallowed or unclean has ever entered my mouth. 9 But the voice answered a second time from heaven, What God has cleansed and pronounced clean, do not you defile and profane by regarding or calling it common or unhallowed or unclean. 10 This occurred three times, and then all was drawn up again into heaven. 11 And right then the three men sent to me from Caesarea arrived at the house in which we were. 12 And the Spirit instructed me to accompany them without hesitation or misgivings or discrimination. So these six brethren accompanied me also, and we went into the man's house. 13 And he related to us how he had seen the angel in his house which stood and said to him, Send men to Joppa and bring Simon who is surnamed Peter; 14 He will give and explain to you a message by means of which you and all your household will be saved . 15 When I began to speak, the Holy Spirit fell on them just as He did on us at the beginning. 16 Then I recalled the declaration of the Lord, how He said, John indeed baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with (Kenneth Wuest, Word Studies.be placed in, introduced into) the Holy Spirit. 17 If then God gave to them the same Gift as He gave to us when we believed in (adhered to, trusted in, and relied on) the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I and what power or authority had I to interfere or hinder or forbid or withstand God? 18 When they heard this, they were quieted and made no further objection. And they glorified God, saying, Then God has also granted to the Gentiles repentance Joseph Thayer, A Greek-English Lexicon.unto life . 19 Meanwhile those who were scattered because of the persecution that arose in connection with Stephen had traveled as far away as Phoenicia and Cyprus and Antioch, without delivering the message to anyone except Jews. 20 But there were some of them, men of Cyprus and Cyrene, who on returning to Antioch spoke to the Greeks also, proclaiming the good news (the Gospel) about the Lord Jesus. 21 And the presence of the Lord was with them with power, so that a great number to believe (to adhere to and trust in and rely on the Lord) and turned and surrendered themselves to Him. 22 The rumors of this came to the ears of the church (assembly) in Jerusalem, and they sent Barnabas to Antioch. 23 When he arrived and saw what grace (favor) God was bestowing upon them, he was full of joy; and he continuously exhorted (warned, urged, and encouraged) them all to cleave unto and remain faithful to and devoted to the Lord with purpose of heart. 24 For he was a good man , full of and controlled by the Holy Spirit and full of faith (of his Joseph Thayer, A Greek-English Lexicon.belief that Jesus is the Messiah, through Whom we obtain eternal salvation). And a large company was added to the Lord. 25 went on to Tarsus to hunt for Saul. 26 And when he had found him, he brought him back to Antioch.

And this did occur during the reign of Claudius. 29 So the disciples resolved to send relief, each according to his individual ability , to the brethren who lived in Judea. 30 And so they did, sending to the elders by the hand of Barnabas and Saul.
