The Council of Jerusalem

By R. J. Rushdoony

Fourteen years after his first visit to Jerusalem, Paul returns to attend the council of Jerusalem, of which we have an account in Acts 15:4-33. The issue we are told in Acts, was created by Pharisees who had come into the church, and whose stand concerning the Gentile converts was that entrance into the church required that they first become Jews, that they be circumcised and keep the law, and then they could become Christians.
