Chapter 16 – Fighting in Church

In many of the towns where Paul and Barnabas traveled, a real battle was going on between the Jewish believers and the new Gentile converts. The Jews said that all Christians should continue to keep the rules that had been handed down to them from the law of Moses. These rules were more than just the Ten Commandments. Many of them were not even in the Bible, but were part of the Jewish traditions started since the Jews came back from their captivity in Babylon.
