The Law and the Kingdom

The congregations in Antioch of Syria were a manifestation of what Jesus described as Matthew recorded (Matthew 13:52): students of Scripture who have learned about the Kingdom, bringing forth what is new and what is old: teachers for the old, and prophets for the new.

Under this team of leaders, the first believers were sent out on purpose with the intention of evangelizing gentiles and making of them citizens of the Kingdom of Heaven and disciples of the King of Heaven and Earth (Acts 13:1-12).
