This week we studied how the gospel spread north beyond Palestine into less Jewish-centric communities including Phoenicia, Antioch (in Syria) and the island of Cyprus. This section introduces us to the city of Antioch which will become the center of Christianity after the destruction of Jerusalem in AD 70 and to the church who sends out Paul and his partners on their missionary journeys.
We also discussed how Luke coined his own term “Hellenistas” to describe the Greek-speaking Jews who were living in areas far-removed from Jerusalem.
