The resolution of the Jerusalem council was that the Gentiles should abstain from food offered to idols, blood, what is strangled, and unchastity. At the time, there was a debate within the early church about whether Gentile converts to Christianity needed to follow Jewish laws and customs, such as circumcision and dietary restrictions. The council, which included apostles and elders, came together to discuss this issue and ultimately decided that Gentiles did not need to become Jews in order to follow Christ. However, they did establish certain guidelines for Gentile believers to follow, including abstaining from food sacrificed to idols, blood, what is strangled (meat that has not been properly drained of its blood), and sexual immorality. These guidelines were intended to help the Jewish and Gentile believers coexist peacefully within the church while maintaining the integrity of their respective cultural and religious practices.
