Decree of the Council of Jerusalem (Acts 15) Part 1: The Literary Flow of Acts 15

Acts 15 is the center of the book of Acts. In the story-flow of Acts, the Jerusalem council resolves crucial issues and enables the gentile mission to go forward with the approval of the Jerusalem church. The council helps portray the unity of the church and helps explain the church's transformation from being essentially Jewish toward being a predominantly gentile community freed from laws characteristic of Judaism.
