Peter and James speak to the saints in Jerusalem to convince them that the Gentile converts are not subject to the requirements of the Law of Moses.
7 … Men and brothers, you know how God chose from us a long time ago that the Gentiles at my mouth should hear the word and faith of the gospel.
8 And God, who knows the hearts, testified to them, giving them the Holy Ghost, just as he did us;
9 And make no difference between us and them, and purify their hearts by faith.
10 Why do you now tempt God by putting a yoke on the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?
11 But we believe that through the Lord Jesus Christ we will be saved, just as they are.
13 … Men and brothers, listen to me:
14 Simeon has declared how God first began to visit the Gentiles to take out a people for His name.
15 And these are the words of the prophets; as it is written,
16 After this I will return and build the Tabernacle of David, which has fallen down; and I will again build its ruins and create it:
17 that the remnant of men might search for the Lord, and all the Gentiles, to whom my name is called, saith the Lord, that doeth all these things.
18 Known to God are all his works from the beginning of the world.
19 Therefore, my sentence is, that we do not concern those who are turned to God among the Gentiles:
20 But that we write unto them, that they abstain from the filth of idols, and from fornication, and from things that are suffocated, and from blood.
21 For in ancient times Moses in every city hath them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every sabbath day.
22 Then the apostles and elders of the whole church rejoiced to send selected men of their own company to Antioch with Paul and Barnabas; namely, Judah’s surname Barzabas and Silas, chief men of the brethren:
23 And they wrote letters of them in this way; The apostles and elders and brothers send greetings to the brethren of the Gentiles in Antioch and Syria and Cilicia:
24 As far as we have heard, some who came from us have troubled you with words that have undermined your souls, saying, Ye shall be circumcised, and keep the law, to whom we gave no such commandment:
25 It seemed good to us as we gathered together and sent selected men to you with our beloved Barnabas and Paul,
26 Men who have given their lives to the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
27 We have therefore sent Judas and Silas, who will also tell you the same things by mouth.
28 For it seemed good unto the Holy Ghost, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things;
29 That you abstain from flesh sacrificed to idols, and from blood, and from strangulation, and from adultery: from whence ye keep yourselves, ye shall do good. Pay attention.
30 When they were dismissed, they came to Antioch; and when they had gathered the multitude, they delivered the letter:
31 And when they had read, they rejoiced for their comfort.
32 And Judas and Silas, who were also prophets, exhorted the brethren with many words, and confirmed them.
33 And having stayed there, they were released in peace from the brothers to the apostles.
34 Nevertheless, Silas was pleased to remain there.
35 Paul and Barnabas also continued in Antioch, teaching and preaching the word of the Lord to many others.
36 And some days after, Paul said to Barnabas, Let us go back and visit our brethren in every city where we have preached the word of the Lord, and see how they do it.
37 And Barnabas decided to take John, whose surname was Mark.
38 But Paul thought not to take him with him, who left them of Pamphylia, and went not with them into the work.
39 And the strife was so sharp between them, that they departed from one another; then Barnabas took Mark and sailed to Cyprus;
40 And Paul chose Silas, and departed, and was recommended by the brethren to the grace of God.
41 And he passed through Syria and Cilicia, and confirmed the churches.
