Acts 10:34-36 “Then Peter replied, 'I see very clearly that God shows no favoritism. In every nation He accepts those who fear Him and do what is right. This is the message of Good News for the people of Israel—that there is peace with God through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all.’”Acts 10 is a beautiful story of reconciliation of two people groups through a relationship.
