Acts 10: Scandalous Acceptance

Reading for Thursday, April 19: Acts 10

This is another chapter that I LOVE: Cornelius’ conversion. Rather than write 500-600 words about it (like I normally do!), I want to hear from you. The major theme of this chapter, demonstrated by salvation coming to the Gentiles, seems to be the dissolving of the old clean / unclean distinctions from the old law.

Peter is called to scandalous acceptance: to receive these new Gentiles as full partners in the Gospel.

How do you think this plays out today? In this story, who are the modern day Peters? And who are the Cornelius’? I have my own thoughts, but I want to hear from you.
