What were the long term accomplishments of the Jerusalem council?

User Avatar
Acts 15 in the New Testament outlines the meeting of the Jerusalem Council. The council was called because Gentiles were being told they had to be circumcised (as part of the law of Moses) to be saved. The result or "accomplishment" of the council's meeting is known as the apostolic decree (Acts 15:20, 29; 21:25). It is a list of requirements for Gentiles.

How will Israel divide Jerusalem?

User Avatar
I do not believe that Israel would willing divide Jerusalem. If such a division did occur, because of some peace treaty negotiations, the city would likely be divided between West Jerusalem (to Israel) and East Jerusalem (to Palestine) and the Old City of Jerusalem would be under some sort of Israeli or international aegis. After the failure of the Taba Summit Agreement, the Israeli populace would not get behind a Palestinian-controlled Old City.
