Villains: The Jealous Troublemakers of Antioch
Wes McAdams   -  

There was an amazing response to the Gospel amongst the Jewish people of Antioch in Pisidia. However, the Jewish leadership there was “filled with jealousy and began to contradict what was spoken by Paul, reviling him.” But this rejection did not stop the mission. In fact, the rejection amongst the Jewish people led to an opportunity with the Gentiles. The church should never be surprised when we encounter opposition and rejection. We should expect this is going to happen. When it does, we should be confident that every rejection is likely accompanied by an opportunity.  (Scripture: Acts 13:44-49)
