Acts 9:26-31 - Welcome to Jerusalem... Now go home!

Acts 9:26-31 ~ Welcome to Jerusalem… Now, Go Home!

This week we continued our study in Acts picking up with Saul’s first-recorded visit with the apostles in Jerusalem after his decision to follow Jesus. Everyone was skeptical, except Barnabas, one of the seven Hellenists who were chosen to serve the growing Christian community in Jerusalem. He was the only one willing to hear Saul’s testimony and upon hearing it, he believed and brought him to the apostles. We also discussed how Saul may have been received back in Tarsus after the apostles sent him “home.”
