This week's episode features Dr. Joel Snider and focuses on Acts 11:19-29.
- It’s easy to note how leadership in Acts transitions from Peter to Paul. Often overlooked, however, is the transition from Jerusalem as the center of Christian activity to Antioch.
- Multiple kings in the Selucid Empire were named Antiochus, which means something like “helper.” Antioch was named for one of these kings. The most notable Antiochus for students of the Bible is Antiochus Epiphanese (IV), who persecuted the Jews of Judea during the time of the Macabees.
- See Acts 13 for more about the missionary work initiated by this early church.
