Acts 15:1-5

The Jerusalem Council

1 a  But some men came down from Judea and were teaching b  the brothers, “Unless you are c  circumcised d  according to the custom of Moses, you cannot be saved.” 2And after Paul and Barnabas had no small dissension and e  debate with them, Paul and Barnabas and f  some of the others were appointed to go up to Jerusalem to g  the apostles and the elders about this question. 3So h  being sent on their way by the church, they passed through both Phoenicia and Samaria i  describing in detail the conversion of the Gentiles, and j  brought great joy to all k  the brothers.
Or  brothers and sisters; also verse 22
4 m  When they came to Jerusalem, they were welcomed by the church and n  the apostles and the elders, and o  they declared all that God had done with them. 5But some believers who belonged to p  the party of the Pharisees rose up and said q  “It is necessary r  to circumcise them and to order them to keep the law of Moses.”

Acts 15:24

24Since we have heard that s  some persons have gone out from us and t  troubled you
Some manuscripts  some persons from us have troubled you
with words, unsettling your minds, although we gave them no instructions,

1 Corinthians 1:10-13

Divisions in the Church

10I appeal to you, brothers,
Or  brothers and sisters. The plural Greek word adelphoi (translated “brothers”) refers to siblings in a family. In New Testament usage, depending on the context, adelphoi may refer either to men or to both men and women who are siblings (brothers and sisters) in God’s family, the church; also verses 11, 26
by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no w  divisions among you, but that you be united x  in the same mind and the same judgment.
11For it has been reported to me by Chloe’s people that there is y  quarreling among you, my brothers. 12What I mean is that z  each one of you says, “I follow Paul,” orI follow aa  Apollos,” orI follow ab  Cephas,” orI follow Christ.” 13 ac  Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you ad  baptized in the name of Paul?

1 Corinthians 3:3

3for you are still of the flesh. For while there is ae  jealousy and strife among you, are you not of the flesh and behaving only in a human way?

1 Corinthians 11:18

18For, in the first place, when you come together as a church af  I hear that there are divisions among you. And I believe it in part
Or I believe a certain report

Galatians 1:7-9

7 ah  not that there is another one, but ai  there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. 8But even if we or aj  an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you ak  let him be accursed. 9As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received al  let him be accursed.

Galatians 2:4

4 am  Yet because of false brothers secretly brought inwho an  slipped in to spy out ao  our freedom that we have in Christ Jesus ap  so that they might bring us into slavery

Philippians 3:2-3

2Look out for aq  the dogs, look out for ar  the evildoers, look out for those who mutilate the flesh. 3For as  we are the circumcision at  who worship au  by the Spirit of God
Some manuscripts God in spirit
and aw  glory in Christ Jesus and put no confidence in the flesh
