The Apostles’ Teaching Was Deemed by Outsiders as Little More Than a Sectarian Dispute Among Jews

This is a subsidiary post of Apostles.

Acts 18:15  –  “questions about words and names and your own law

Acts 23:29  –  “questions about their law”  (As for the dispute not being worthy of a death penalty, see also Acts 25:25; 26:31; 28:18.)

Acts 25:19  –  “had some points of disagreement with him about their own religion and about a dead man, Jesus, whom Paul asserted to be alive”

The Gentiles cared little for the internecine religious squabbles of a very small sect in the Roman Empire of the 1st Century.  Of course, for the apostles and their antagonists, these matters carried the greatest possible weight.
