Acts 8: 1-25, “The Samaritan Pentecost.” Gerald van der Kolk

The Gospel was for the whole world, first for the Jews and then for the Gentiles and yet up to this point of time, everyone seemed comfortable in Jerusalem, and it seemed nobody was thinking about the Gentiles, the nations who were lost in their sin. I can’t help but say this is so significant. The Israelites in all their history were to be a kingdom of priests to the nations. Yet, they failed miserably in that. Throughout their history they often became like the nations around them, but they had never brought nations into the family of God! This is all about to change!
