The discomfort between Jews and non-Jews (Gentiles) reaches a peak. Is it possible for non-Jews to become followers of Jesus? The answer is obvious to us, but it wasn’t to them. Most Jews had spent their entire lives avoiding Gentiles, and now they were supposed to attend church with them? The church talked about the issue and heard the stories of how Jesus changed the lives of non-Jews who had trusted Him and decided that non-Jews had just as much access to Jesus as Jews.
How great it is that the church is open to everyone.
