From the Rev Bobby Liddle.
Paul and Barnabas then recounted the signs and wonders God had done through them among the Gentiles.When they had finished, James spoke up and drew the assembly back to Scripture. Agreeing with Peter he quoted Amos 9:11,12 on how God would return, restore His people so that even the Gentiles could bear His name.
The conclusion was that the assembly wrote to all the churches stating –“It seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us not to burden you with anything beyond the following requirements: You are to abstain from food sacrificed to idols, from blood, from the meat of strangled animals and from sexual immorality. You will do well to avoid these things. Farewell.” v28, 29
Yours in His name,
