Eat the Pig, Peter! Acts 10

Today’s episode includes a discussion of the dramatic and significant vision of Peter to “Rise, Peter; kill and eat” (Acts 10:13). Not only is this another turning point in the Book of Acts where the food laws of old put asunder, but the way for the inclusion of the gentile believer becomes clear.

Qualifications for Deacons

Paul gave Timothy specific instructions to ordain elders and deacons as the leaders of the churches that they were planting. The Deacons who we were first introduced in Acts 6 were to be dignified, honest, and faithful, not addicted to much wine, convinced of their faith and doctrine, mature in life and faith. They are to be the husband of one wife managing their household well. All that just so they can sweep the floor after a Sunday lunch. What are all of the responsibilities of deacons? Are they to be listened to or just the guys that take the offering every Sunday? Are they to be respected in the office or is it just a stepping stone to eldership?

Deacons in Acts

In the early chapters of Acts, at the beginning of the New Covenant Church there was a joyous time where everyone shared all that they had will anyone else who was in need. Just a few months later we have seen jealousy, lying, and deceit with Ananias and Sapphire. We have seen persecution escalating from the Jewish leadership and now we see factions among the people. It doesn’t take long for our sin to get in the way of God’s goodness. Was the solution to the problem with the widows the creation of a new office or was this a onetime occurrence? Are we given a pattern to follow or can culture dictate how the structure of a church is formulated.
