Thought for Tuesday 17th May
“...if he found any there who belonged to the Way… he might take them as prisoners to Jerusalem.”
These were Jewish Christians and they worshipped in synagogues; hence Saul’s concern that they might lead others astray. Christians were called followers of “the Way”; only in Ch11 will we encounter the word “Christians” used of believers in Christ.
Reflection: “The Way” reminds us of the earliest disciples’ travels and it suggests that our faith is a journey through life, rather than simply a set of beliefs.
Welcome to the website of the Church of Scotland's International Presbytery. We're glad you're visiting. We hope you will feel part of our Christian family of faith, and know that you will find a warm welcome with us.
"Go, then, to all peoples, everywhere... you will be witnesses for me to the ends of the earth."
