But Elymas the sorcerer (for that is what his name means) opposed them and tried to turn the proconsul from the faith.

When the congregation was dismissed, many of the Jews and devout converts to Judaism followed Paul and Barnabas. On the next Sabbath when the Jews saw the crowds, they were filled with jealousy. They began to contradict what Paul was saying and heaped abuse on him. Then Paul and Barnabas answered them boldly: “We had to speak the word of God to you first. Since you reject it and do not consider yourselves worthy of eternal life, we now turn to the Gentiles. Jewish leaders expelled them from their region.


(Acts 14) What happened in Iconium?

Paul and Barnabas went as usual into the Jewish synagogue. They spoke so effectively that a great number of Jews and Greeks believed.

So Paul and Barnabas were appointed, along with some other believers, to go up to Jerusalem to see the apostles and elders about this question.


(Acts 15) What was the answer?

God does not discriminate
“It is my judgment, therefore, that we should not make it difficult for the Gentiles who are turning to God. 20 Instead we should write to them, telling them to abstain from food polluted by idols, from sexual immorality, from the meat of strangled animals and from blood.
