2 Kings 4-6; Acts 9

Acts 9:43 And he stayed a long time in Jappa with Simon, a tanner.

The fact that Peter lodged with a tanner would have been significant to both the Gentile and the Jewish Christians, for Judaism considered the tanning occupation unclean.  Later in Acts we see the first Church council debating whether Gentile Christians needed to comply with the Mosaic Law with practices such as circumcision.  The first true heresy was the belief that they did need to comply.

GOD’S ANSWER: My Son fulfilled the Old Covenant, established the New.
