Leit. Acts 10: 24-48.
The next day he entered Caesarea. And Cornelius was waiting for them, having gathered their closest relatives and friends. 25 And it came to pass, when Kefah was going in, that Cornelius met him, and fell down at his feet, and worshiped him. 26 But Kefah lifted him up, saying, Arise, for I am a man also. 27 And when he had talked with him, he came and found many assembled, 28 and said unto them, Ye know well that it is not lawful for a Yehudim to be assembled, or to approach strangers; but the Most High has shown me that no man should I call common or unclean; 29 Wherefore, when I was called, I came without objection. I ask, therefore, why; Did you send for me? 30 And Cornelius said, “Now it is now four days since I was praying in my house at the ninth hour, and behold, a man stood before me in bright garments, 31 and said, Cornelius, this prayer is heard, and your alms are in memory before the Most High God. 32 Send therefore to Yafo, and send for Shimon, whose name is Kefah; he is staying at the home of Shimom, a tanner, by the sea. 33 So I sent for you at once, and you did well to come. Now, for we are all present before the Most High God, to hear all that the Lord has commanded you. Then Kefah said to him, “Verily I acknowledge that the everlasting God is no respecter of persons; 35 but it is acceptable to him who in any nation fears him and does what is right. 36 The word that he sent to the children of Israel, proclaiming peace through Yeshu ‘the Messiah (this is the Lord of all) 37 these words, you well know, was proclaimed throughout all Yehuda, beginning with Galil, after the baptism that Y ‘ochanan preached; 38 concerning Yeshu ‘of Nazareth, as YEHWH anointed him with power; who went about doing good and healing all the oppressed of the Devil, because YEHWH was with him. 39 We are witnesses of all that he did, both in the land of Yehudim and in Yehoshaleim; to which they killed, hanging it on the tree. 40 Yahweh raised him up on the third day, and granted him to be manifested not to all the people, but to the witnesses of the everlasting God, to us, who have eaten and drank with him, after he has risen from the dead; 42 This man commanded us to preach to the people, and to testify that he is he who by the eternal God was made the judge of the living and the dead. 43 To him all the prophets bear witness that everyone who believes in him will receive the remission of sins by his name. 44 While Kefah yet said these things, the Spirit came down; the Holy One, over all who heard the word. 45 The believers who were of the circumcision, as many as had come with Kefah, were amazed that the gift of the Spirit was also poured out on the Gentiles. the Holy One; 46 For they heard them speak in tongues magnifying the Most High God. 47 And Kefah said, Can any man refuse the water, lest they be baptized, who also received the Spirit like us? the saint? 48 And he commanded them that they should be baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus the Messiah. Then they begged him to stay with them for a few days.
COMMENT
In Roman rule in ancient Israel, non-iehudi people stood out for iehudim, for the good services they rendered to that nation; Cornelius, who is supposed to have built a synagogue for them.
Now the first five verses of this account of Luke in this ten-fold chapter of Acts, focus very firmly on these things, and confirms us to be Cornelius the same as at the foot of the cross where Yehoshu was, “said truly,” this was the Son of the Eternal God “.
