Council: Acts Poem 15

James the Just, whose judgment was adopted in the Apostolic Decree of Acts 15:19–29, Public Domain

In Jerusalem a council held

Important decisions to be made

Apostles and elders gathered there

To discuss who should be saved

It was in a sense a task redundant

As it was a call the Spirit had already made

As Paul had baptised Gentiles of faith

And Peter too with Cornelius a foundation laid

And so circumcision of the flesh was not a requirement given

For the circumcision of the heart

Was all that’s needed to enter Heaven
