Our story begins around 2,000 years ago in Caesarea with an unlikely encounter between a Jew and a Gentile.
Peter, a close disciple of Jesus, had a vision while praying. In this vision, he was directed to end a long-standing Jewish custom of avoiding the homes of non-Jews (Gentiles) so that he could share a crucial message with Cornelius. This is the first time the “Gospel” has been shared outside of the Jewish world.
We then move back to the moment when Jesus himself gave the instructions that Peter referred to in his message. Over the coming weeks, we will do our best to recreate the discussion that took place on the seven mile journey to Emmaus as “he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.”
