Acts 10:43-44

Peter in Jerusalem regarding reaching to Gentiles

Acts 11:1-4
New King James Version (NKJV)

11 Now the apostles and brethren who were in Judea heard that the Gentiles had also received the word of God. And when Peter came up to Jerusalem, those of the circumcision contended with him, saying, “You went in to uncircumcised men and ate with them!”

But Peter explained it to them in order from the beginning, saying:

Acts 11:15-18
New King James Version (NKJV)

15 And as I began to speak, the Holy Spirit fell upon them, as upon us at the beginning. 16 Then I remembered the word of the Lord, how He said, ‘John indeed baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit.’ 17 If therefore God gave them the same gift as He gave us when we believed on the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I that I could withstand God?”

18 When they heard these things they became silent; and they glorified God, saying, “Then God has also granted to the Gentiles repentance to life.”

Many times in Gospel the word “Repentance” is not there. 

Does that means Repentance is not happening? 

  • Repentance means Metanoia, which means Change of Mind
  • Changing of Mind is still happening.
