Different gentiles had joined the Church, however they had been changed over to Judaism before getting to be Christians, which brought about no awesome bustle among Jewish Christians who thought of Christianity as having a few ties with Judaism. Going before the immersion of Cornelius, there were a few otherworldly appearances: the service of a heavenly attendant to Cornelius; a dream to Peter indicating that the dietary limitations of the law of Moses were to be suspended; the voice of the Spirit to Peter; and a sign of the force of the Holy Ghost, joined by the talking in tongues. Every one of this would clarify the celestial endorsement and heading of what was going to happen. The absolution of Cornelius and his family denoted another measurement in the work of the Church in N.T. times, since it opened the path for the gospel to be lectured the gentiles specifically, without passing by method for Judaism.
