The beauty of this story is that there is no guessing as to what it means… yes, it’s strange! Why didn’t God just say what He meant? Ask your kids and see what they say!
While we think talking is a great way to relay information, God used many different ways to communicate – visions, angels, parables, prophecies, and, of course His son Jesus!
God was ready for the Gospel to go to people the Jews considered unclean. The vision Peter received remained a mystery until Cornelius’ servants called him to meet with their master and then it’s meaning became clear!
Unless you have a classroom full of children with Jewish descent, celebrate with them that God gave grace to everyone back then so that we could received the Gospel too!
