A Radical Mission Part 1
Paul and Barnabas are called out to begin what will become known as the First Missionary Journey of Paul. A supernatural wonder accompanies Paul’s words in an account similar to the kinds of wonders which accompanied Peter and John’s words earlier in the book of Acts. Then Paul finds himself in front of the whole city at the synagogue, and the opposition he faces from the Jews is too great to overcome. So, he sets a new course for reaching out to the Gentiles to lead them to Christ. Peter’s situation was slightly different, but despite Jewish opposition, it also led to the same result of converting Gentiles.
