Summoned to Caesarea

Now while Peter wondered within himself what this vision which he had seen meant, behold, the men who had been sent from Cornelius had made inquiry for Simon’s house, and stood before the gate. 18 And they called and asked whether Simon, whose surname was Peter, was lodging there.

19 While Peter thought about the vision, the Spirit said to him, “Behold, three men are seeking you. 20 Arise therefore, go down and go with them, doubting nothing; for I have sent them.”

21 Then Peter went down to the men who had been sent to him from Cornelius, and said, “Yes, I am he whom you seek. For what reason have you come?”

22 And they said, “Cornelius the centurion, a just man, one who fears God and has a good reputation among all the nation of the Jews, was divinely instructed by a holy angel to summon you to his house, and to hear words from you.” 23 Then he invited them in and lodged them.

On the next day Peter went away with them, and some brethren from Joppa accompanied him. — Acts 10:17-23.

While Peter wonders about the meaning of the vision he has had, the men from Cornelius arrive and ask for him at Simon’s house.

While Peter is still pondering on the vision, the Spirit tells him about the three men who were asking for him and directs him to go with them without doubting because He has sent them.

Peter goes down to the men sent by Cornelius and admits that he is Simon Peter, and asks for the reason of their coming.

They tell him that Cornelius the centurion, a just man who fears God and has a good reputation among all, was divinely instructed by a holy angel to summon Peter to his house, and to hear the gospel from him. He invites them in and lodges them.

The next day Peter goes away with them, and some brethren from Joppa accompany him.
