"When Peter had come to Antioch..."
Text: Galatians 2:11a
AN INCIDENT NOT RECORDED IN THE BOOK OF ACTS
The following text Paul wrote was not recorded in the Book of Acts. (This is understandable because the Book of Acts was not meant to be a record of incidents like this one. Luke, the author, sought to trace an outline of the beginning of the church and its growth.)
Now when Peter had come to Antioch, I withstood him to his face,
because he was to be blamed;
for before certain men came from James, he would eat with the Gentiles;
but when they came, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing those
who were of the circumcision.
And the rest of the Jews also played the hypocrite with him,
so that even Barnabas was carried away with their hypocrisy.
