In Jerusalem James, the brother of Jesus, was a leader in the church. Paul told James and others in the church about his Missionary Journeys and how that both Jews and Gentiles had become followers of Jesus. James was happy to hear about Paul’s missionary work. But there were many arguments and angry people in Jerusalem.

Since Paul was a Jew. The Jerusalem Church was an early Christian community located in Jerusalem, of which James and Peter were leaders.

Paul was affiliated with this community, and took his central kerygma, as Paul and the Jerusalem Church book in 1 Corinthi from this community.

In the New Testament, James is clearly leader of the Jerusalem church, and both Peter and Paul report to him. In Acts Peter sends to James news of his release from prison; Paul visits James and the Jerusalem church in Acts 15 and Acts A vital meeting between Paul and the Jerusalem church took place in the year 49 by "traditional" (and majority) dating, compared to a "revisionist" (and minority) dating of 47/ The meeting is described in Acts and usually seen as the same event mentioned by Paul in Galatians Born: c.

5 AD, Tarsus, Cilicia, Roman Empire. The Church of Jerusalem F.F. Bruce [p.5] There was a period―it did not last very long―during which the holy church throughout all the world was confined within the limits of one local church.

Paul claims his offering for the Jersualem church is for "the poor among the saints in. The book had to be written in a certain way to guarantee this success. What we find in the book of Acts therefore, the book of the Church which depicts it's mission and growth, is the purposeful minimization of the conflict between Paul and the leaders of the "Jerusalem Church," James and Peter.

Although Paul has long been acknowledged as the founder of Christianity, Tabor weaves a fascinating story out of close readings of Paul’s letters and the book of Acts, which contains an idealized history of the early movement as well as Paul’s earliest activities on behalf of his teachings, and compellingly illustrates the ways that Cited by: 4.

Three times in the book of Acts,the Bible student is informed that after Saul’s conversion to Christ in Damascus, he departed for Jerusalem.

When Paul and Barnabas Paul and the Jerusalem Church book to Antioch to give their missionary report, they were told how God “had opened the door of faith unto the Gentiles” [ethnos, “nations”].This does not mean that, in times past, non-Jews had been excluded from a covenant relationship with God.

While Israel was the only nation (as a national unit) with whom God had made a covenant, the purpose of that.

Council of Jerusalem, a conference of the Christian Apostles in Jerusalem about 50 CE that decreed that Gentile Christians did not have to observe the Mosaic Law of the Jews.

It was occasioned by the insistence of certain Judaic Christians that Gentile Christians obey the Mosaic custom of circumcision. Paul Visits James at Jerusalem. 17 When we arrived in Jerusalem, the brothers welcomed us warmly.

18 The next day Paul went with us to visit James; and all the elders were present. 19 After greeting them, he related one by one the things that God had done among the Gentiles through his ministry. 20 When they heard it, they praised God. Then they said to him, ‘You see, brother, how many.

And, as far as the Book of Acts is concerned, Paul’s ministry of freely traveling and preaching the Word of God, of going from Church to Church (or establishing new Churches) is over.

James, the brother of Jesus For the remainder of the history given by Luke, James is barely mentioned again, and Peter is absent. In chapter 21 Paul makes another visit to Jerusalem to meet with the leadership and the only name mentioned is James.

Other than the letter attributed to James, he is only mentioned three times in all of the NT. The book of Acts claims that when Paul reached Jerusalem, he was persuaded to pay for the release of four Jews from their vows.

As Acts tells the story, Paul's payment was intended to prove to the members of the Jerusalem church that Paul still respected the Law of Moses (Acts –26).

Paul seems to be in continuous conflict with the Jewish communities of the Diaspora and with agents of the Apostles and the Jerusalem authorities sent to the Diaspora to oppose him. The execution of James by the High Priest in 62 CE and the execution of both Peter and Paul by Nero in the mid's CE, followed by the Roman destruction of Judea.

The solidarity of Jewish and Gentile Christianity, in particular the strengthening of fellowship between the church of Jerusalem and the Gentile mission, was a major concern of Paul’s, and his organization of the relief fund was in large measure designed to promote this end.
