The Acts of the Apostles is the sequel to the Gospel of Luke, but follows immediately after the Gospel of John. It begins with the Ascension of Jesus and ends with Paul preparing to travel to Rome.

Acts 15 contains an account of the decision of the Council of Jerusalem led by James the Just. There was a controversy over whether Gentile Christians needed to become Jews and be circumcized to be saved, or if it was enough merely to accept Jesus as Christ. James ruled in Paul's favor, and Paul wrote the epistle to the Galatians soon afterword. Some believe that James based his decision on the Noahide laws.

Simon Peter had previously introduced the first Gentile converts to Christianity after having a vision. In the vision, a blanket containing non-kosher animals was lowered down three times, then God told Peter, "What God has cleansed, you must not call unclean" (Acts 10).
