Peter says,

I have a question.

Who was the first to call believers Christians?

Peter what a good question.

well it has often been said that some group of people started calling believers in Christ Christians in derision. But of course there is no proof of that.

Here is what the Bible says and I will add my two cents.

Acts 11:22 Then tidings of these things came unto the ears of the church which was in Jerusalem: and they sent forth Barnabas, that he should go as far as Antioch.
23 Who, when he came, and had seen the grace of God, was glad, and exhorted them all, that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord.
24 For he was a good man, and full of the Holy Ghost and of faith: and much people was added unto the Lord.
25 Then departed Barnabas to Tarsus, for to seek Saul:
26 And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.

Is there truly a rapture of believers in the bible? – Asked by Christian Smith

This is a great question Christian.

Actually the word Rapture is not found in the English AV text. It is a Latin word, a translation of the Greek word harpazo. the problem here is that the meaning of the Koine Greek word is unknown. If you go to a Strong’s concordance what you read is a classical Greek meaning placed on the a Koine Greek word and we are not sure if the meanings are the same. That is because 1) we don’t have any original scriptures in Koine Greek text only copies of them and 2) there has not been discovered any Koine Greek word dictionary to define the Koine Greek words from.

So we are left to trust in God’s promise to preserve his word to all generations (Ps 12:6,7) and for us it is the Authorized Bible
