Escuela sabática: Etnia y discipulado

(Traducido por Carlos Enrique Espinosa)

La historia de cómo llegamos a llamarnos cristianos en Antioquía, marcó un hito en el crecimiento de la cristiandad. (Hipertexto: Hechos 11:19–26). Nuestros antepasados espirituales creían haber recibido la misión de “anunciar el mensaje sólo a los judíos” (v. 19), es decir, a personas que compartían el mismo texto sagrado, la misma historia, las mismas costumbres de alimentación, y la misma cultura. De lo contrario se pondría en peligro la identidad del grupo.

Ethnicity and Discipleship

The Antioch story of how we got our name marked a milestone in the growth of Christianity (Acts 11:19). Our spiritual forefathers believed they had been given the task to "tell the message only to the Jews" (v. 19), to people who shared the same sacred text, same history, same diet, and same culture. To do otherwise would threaten their group identity.
