- Hi Bill
There is no such thing as "clearly biblical," for what is clearly biblical to you will not be clearly biblical to someone else.

Might I suggest raising the often assumed but never proven point of just where was the Antioch referred to in Acts and Galatians. It is often claimed to have been Syrian Antioch, yet there is reasonably solid evidence that this might not have been the case, especially if Acts may be trusted in stating that the first missionary outreach to the gentiles was to Antioch.
