Reformation Study Bible – Gal 2:11
Gal 2:11

2:11 Antioch. The capital of the Roman province of Syria and the largest city of that province. Antioch was home to a large Jewish community and, not surprisingly, was the first place mentioned in Acts where Jewish Christians preached the gospel to Gentiles (Acts 11:19, 20). Not only was the church at Antioch the first church in our records to bring Jewish and Gentile Christians together in worship and fellowship, but, as far as we know, it was the first church to send missionaries to preach the gospel specifically to Gentiles (Acts 13:1–3).
