Clean and Unclean

Scripture Passage: Acts 10:1-8

Cornelius was a good man who gave to the poor and prayed regularly to God, yet Cornelius still needed to hear the way of salvation by a human messenger. The role of the angel was to get Peter to come to Cornelius and tell him the way of salvation.

Peter was living with Simon the tanner, by the sea. A tanner treated the skins of dead animals and so contacted the unclean, according to Jewish laws. So many people despised him. Peter's decision to stay with him showed a willingness to forget Jewish tradition and prepare the way for his visit to the Gentiles.

1. What kind of man was Cornelius?
He was devout and God-fearing.
2. What did the angel ask Peter to do?
To send men to bring Peter.
3. Where was Peter staying?
With Simon the tanner beside the sea.

Memory verse: Acts 10:34-35
Then Peter replied, "I see very clearly that God doesn't show partiality. In every nation he accepts those who fear him and do what is right." (NLT)
