We read on Sunday about Paul and Barnabas preaching in the synagogue and telling the story of Jesus. As we see today, they were invited back the following week to say more about Jesus. As we'll see, some in the audience become very angry. While our first instinct is usually to wonder why people would be so violent, remember that they were worried their faith was at risk. Despite the risks and the persecution, the church kept growing and people's lives were changed.

so that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.” ’
