      Abstract

      The historical narratives in Acts 11 that relate the experience of the church in Antioch illuminate several intersecting themes that are of enduring concern to the mission of God. These include ethnic diversity, diaspora, the missionary calling of the church, and the call to fruitfulness and growth. Whilst the focus of this study rests upon the first two of these themes, the third and fourth of these themes will be seen to have particular relevance to the overall theme being explored in this Forum.
