Acts 11

In the first century writing was not an easy thing. You had to write on parchment, and you wanted to conserve words because parchment was a specially prepared animal skin, and it was scarce. When Luke first wrote the Book of Acts, he wrote it on a piece of parchment that would have been about thirty feet long. If it had been any longer it would have been too bulky. So writers in the first century tried to limit their words.      However this story is told twice. We already read the story in Acts 10, but Luke writes it again in Acts 11, as Peter told his story to the church in Jerusalem. For Luke to write the story twice means that this story of the Gentiles receiving the grace of God was a very important point in time for the Christian church.”][/audio]
