The incipient Church center remained in Jerusalem and overseen by James - Jesus' half brother. The remaining Apostles began to reach out to the dispersed Jews throughout the Roman Empire. Paul was converted and given a special task to go to the Gentiles, Kings and the children of Israel - commonly referred to as 'the Lost Ten Tribes' - (see Acts 9:15). And so the difussion began...
