Acts 15 tells us of a crucial moment in the early Jewish church when the leaders had to figure out how to allow gentiles into their community. Professor Pinchas Shir walks us through the critical decisions made in the Jerusalem council and the significance of the instructions to non-Jews to not eat meat offered to idols, blood, animals that were strangled, and to stay away from sexual immorality.

Episode Notes

Acts 15 is a critical moment in the life of the early Jewish church. The leaders examined what the Holy Spirit was doing and they searched through their scriptures for insight on how to involve non-Jews in their movement.
