...about the name "Christian"
Did you know that the name Christian is considered a "nickname" and was never a name that Christ gave His disciples. Christ NEVER proclaimed that He was a Christian!
In fact the origin of the name first surfaced in Acts 11:26, after Barnabas brought Saul (Paul) to Antioch where they taught the disciples for about a year, the text says:..... the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch." The second mention of the term follows in Acts 26:28, where Herod Agrippa II replied to Paul the Apostle, "Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian.
The city of Antioch, is where someone gave them the name Christians, this individual was known and had a reputation for coming up with such nicknames. However Peter's apparent endorsement of the term led to its being preferred over "Nazarenes" and the term Christianoi from 1 Peter becomes the standard term in the Early alleged "Church Fathers from Ignatius and Polycarp" onwards.
Nevertheless and since that time; if you do your research a DRASTIC change of the original Gospel of The Kingdom of God........that then became hidden for over 1900 years...GO FIGURE.
Father, there is great significant in a name. You have been purposeful in requiring that we be Christ followers, those that are called to action of obeying His every command. Help us to know the origin of that which has been subtly planted to destroy the simple teaching of Christ. Return us back to the simplicity of the Gospel of The Kingdom of God, In Jesus Name
