and he was hungry. But while a meal was being prepared, he fell into a trance.

Unchecked Copy Box Act 10:11

He saw the sky open, and something like a large sheet was let down by its four corners.

But the voice spoke again: “Do not call something unclean if God has made it clean.”

The same vision was repeated three times. Then the sheet was suddenly pulled up to heaven.

Tools specific to Act 10:17

Unchecked Copy Box Act 10:17

Peter was very perplexed. What could the vision mean? Just then the men sent by Cornelius found Simon’s house. Standing outside the gate,

Tools specific to Act 10:18

Unchecked Copy Box Act 10:18

they asked if a man named Simon Peter was staying there.

Tools specific to Act 10:19

Meanwhile, as Peter was puzzling over the vision, the Holy Spirit said to him, “Three men have come looking for you.

Get up, go downstairs, and go with them without hesitation. Don’t worry, for I have sent them.”

Tools specific to Act 10:22

Unchecked Copy Box Act 10:22

They said, “We were sent by Cornelius, a Roman officer. He is a devout and God-fearing man, well respected by all the Jews. A holy angel instructed him to summon you to his house so that he can hear your message.”

Tools specific to Act 10:23

Unchecked Copy Box Act 10:23

So Peter invited the men to stay for the night. The next day he went with them, accompanied by some of the brothers from Joppa.

They arrived in Caesarea the following day. Cornelius was waiting for them and had called together his relatives and close friends.

Unchecked Copy Box Act 10:27

Tools specific to Act 10:28

Unchecked Copy Box Act 10:28

Peter told them, “You know it is against our laws for a Jewish man to enter a Gentile home like this or to associate with you. But God has shown me that I should no longer think of anyone as impure or unclean.

Tools specific to Act 10:29

Unchecked Copy Box Act 10:29

So I came without objection as soon as I was sent for. Now tell me why you sent for me.”

Tools specific to Act 10:30

Unchecked Copy Box Act 10:30

Cornelius replied, “Four days ago I was praying in my house about this same time, three o’clock in the afternoon. Suddenly, a man in dazzling clothes was standing in front of me.

Tools specific to Act 10:31

Unchecked Copy Box Act 10:31

He told me, ‘Cornelius, your prayer has been heard, and your gifts to the poor have been noticed by God!

Tools specific to Act 10:32

Now send messengers to Joppa, and summon a man named Simon Peter. He is staying in the home of Simon, a tanner who lives near the seashore.’

Tools specific to Act 10:33

Unchecked Copy Box Act 10:33

So I sent for you at once, and it was good of you to come. Now we are all here, waiting before God to hear the message the Lord has given you.”

but God raised him to life on the third day. Then God allowed him to appear,

Tools specific to Act 10:41

Unchecked Copy Box Act 10:41

not to the general public,[fn] but to us whom God had chosen in advance to be his witnesses. We were those who ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead.

Tools specific to Act 10:42

And he ordered us to preach everywhere and to testify that Jesus is the one appointed by God to be the judge of all—the living and the dead.
