Syrian City Once a Center of Life Now a Center of Death
Moody Adams Antioch Syria was the place where Jesus' disciples were first called Christians. It was also the center of the Apostle Paul's missionary activity.
Acts 11:26 "And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch."
Acts 15:35 "Paul also and Barnabas continued in Antioch, teaching and preaching the word of the Lord, with many others also."
Paul spread the message of eternal life from Syria. Today barrel bombs and Saran gas are flowing from Syria where hundreds of thousands have been slaughtered.
