Good morning! Here we go with Acts 15!
This chapter is all about a disagreement in the church about the Mosaic Law. In verse 5 the Pharisees said, "The Gentiles must be circumcised and required to obey the law of Moses." The problem was that a lot of the new church was composed of former Jews and to them these rules were important. They thought of Christianity as an extension of Judaism. Why do you think theses rule were important to the former Jews?
To compromise, they wrote a letter to Antioch, Syria and Cilicia. In their letter they told them the only requirements for them was to "abstain from food sacrificed to idols, from blood from the meat of strangled animals and from sexual immorality." (v. 29) From the letter and the way it was delivered, what do you learn about the way to solve disagreements among Christians?
Lastly in the chapter, Paul and Barnabas split up. Paul did not want to take John (or Mark) on their journey but Barnabas wanted to. So because of this dispute they went their separate ways. Have you ever lost a friendship because of a religious dispute?
