What is the Passover?
You are in complete error on the "two gospels" theory. Phillip preached the same message to the gentiles as was delivered to the Jews Jerusalem. Acts 8:5 ; Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and preached Christ unto them. Acts 8:6;; And the people with one accord gave heed unto those things which Philip spake, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did. Acts 8:12;; But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women. Peter delivered the same message to Cornelius and his household as he delivered to the Jews at Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost. Acts 10:28 And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean.Acts 10:34 Then Peter opened [his] mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: Acts 10:35 But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him. Acts 10:36 The word which [God] sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:) Acts 10:37 That word, [I say], ye know, which was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached; Acts 10:38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. Acts 10:44;; While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word. Acts 10:45 And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost. Acts 10:46;; For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter, Acts 10:47 Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we? Acts 10:48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days. Paul preached the same gospel to the Gentiles as Peter had preached to Cornelius,(an Italian), and the Jews in Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost. Acts 19:1;; And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples, Acts 19:2; He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost. Acts 19:3 And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John's baptism. Acts 19:4 Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus. Acts 19:5 When they heard [this], they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Acts 19:6 And when Paul had laid [his] hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied. This is the only plan of Salvation that has been in force since the day of Pentecost. It is for who so ever will and that means you and me as well as the Jews. Same plan, same way, the plan is: Acts 2:38;; Then Peter said unto them, Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Acts 2:39;; For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, [even] as many as the Lord our God shall call.
Dear Jerry, It sounds like you are telling us not asking us a question and much of what you say we agree with Jesus Christ has always been the Way of salvation and that never changes under any dispensation. They knew Him as Jehovah in the Old Testament for He is the only True God. What you are failing to see from His Word is the dispensation we currently enjoy even after sending you so much Scriptural proof. Certainly you must see that God was reaching out to Israel first during the time of the Book of Acts and using the Gentiles to provoke them to jealousy. Since Acts 28:28 salvation is no longer of the Jews but to "whosoever", in fact Israel is blind and the only nation we know of that totally rejects Jesus Christ for all others see Him as at least a good man but to them a false prophet and false Messiah. Blindness had happen to Israel in PART according to Romans 11:25 but now and for 2000 years in FULL until the time of the very end according to Scripture. Let's look at Acts 28:28 closely with an honest attention to the detail God gives us.
