11:1And the apostles and the brothers who were throughout Judea heard that the nations also received the Word of God.
11:2And when Peter went up to Jerusalem, those of the circumcision contended with him,
11:3saying, You went in to uncircumcised men and ate with them.
11:4But beginning, Peter set out to them in order, saying,
11:5I was being in the city of Joppa, praying. And in an ecstasy, I saw a vision: a certain vessel was coming down, like a huge sheet, being let down by four corners out of the heaven; and it came as far as me.
11:6Looking intently on this , I observed. And I saw the four-footed animals of the earth, and the wild beasts, and the creeping things, and the birds of the heaven.
11:7And I heard a voice saying to me, Peter, rise up, slay and eat.
11:8But I said, Not at all, Lord, because never has anything common or unclean entered into my mouth.
11:9But a voice answered me the second time out of the heaven, What God has cleansed, you do not make common.
11:10And this took place three times , and all things were pulled up into the heaven again.
11:11And, behold, at once three men stood at the house in which I was, having been sent from Caesarea to me.
11:12And the Spirit said to me to go with them, not discriminating. And these six brothers also were with me, and we went into the man's house.
11:13And he told us how he saw an angel in his house, standing and saying to him, Send men to Joppa, and send for Simon who is surnamed Peter,
11:14who will speak words to you by which you and all your household will be saved.
11:15And in my beginning to speak, the Holy Spirit fell on them, as also on us in the beginning.
11:16And I recalled the Word of the Lord, how He said, John indeed baptized with water, but you shall be baptized in the Holy Spirit.
11:17Then if God gave the same gift to them as also to us, believing on the Lord Jesus Christ, and I, who was I to be able to prevent God?
11:18And hearing these things, they kept silent and glorified God, saying, Then God also has granted to the nations repentance unto life.
11:19Then, indeed, they who were scattered by the oppression taking place over Stephen passed through to Phoenicia and Cyprus and Antioch, speaking the Word to no one except only to Jews.
11:20But some men from them, Cypriots and Cyrenians, who had come to Antioch, spoke to the Hellenists, announcing the gospel of the Lord Jesus.
11:21And the hand of the Lord was with them, and a great number believing, they turned to the Lord.
11:22And the Word was heard in the ears of the church in Jerusalem concerning them. And they sent out Barnabas to go through as far as Antioch;
11:23who having come, and seeing the grace of God, rejoiced. And he exhorted all with purpose of heart to abide near the Lord.
11:24For he was a good man, and full of the Holy Spirit and of faith. And a considerable crowd was added to the Lord.
11:25And Barnabas went out to Tarsus to seek Saul.
11:26And finding him, he brought him to Antioch. And it happened that many of them were gathered to them in the church a whole year. And they taught a considerable crowd. And the disciples were first called Christians at Antioch.
11:27And in these days prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch.
11:28And one of them named Agabus rising up, he signified through the Spirit that a great famine was about to be over all the habitable earth, which also happened on Claudius Caesar's time .
11:29And according as any was prospered, the disciples, each of them, determined to send for ministry to those brothers living in Judea,
11:30which they also did, sending to the elders through the hand of Barnabas and Saul.
