Bible: Acts 13:45-48
13:45 But when the Jews saw the crowds, they were filled with jealousy, 1 and they began to contradict 2 what Paul was saying 3 by reviling him. 4 13:46 Both Paul and Barnabas replied courageously, 5 “It was necessary to speak the word of God 6 to you first. Since you reject it and do not consider yourselves worthy 7 of eternal life, we 8 are turning to the Gentiles. 9 13:47 For this 10 is what the Lord has commanded us: ‘I have appointed 11 you to be a light 12 for the Gentiles, to bring salvation 13 to the ends of the earth.’” 14 13:48 When the Gentiles heard this, they began to rejoice 15 and praise 16 the word of the Lord, and all who had been appointed for eternal life 17 believed.
