To read the Bible in a year, read Acts 11 on July 3, In the year of our Lord 2020

The church confronted people over Peter going to the home of a Gentile and preaching to the Gentile. However, Peter explained how the Holy Spirit backed up what he did, and,
When they heard these things they became silent; and they glorified God, saying, “Then God has also granted to the Gentiles repentance to life.”
– Acts 11.18
