After Cornelius had his vision, Peter, still at the home of Simon the tanner, had gone up onto the housetop to pray. There, he had a vision of his own that was perplexing to him at first. He had become hungry, and someone at Simon’s house was preparing him something to eat. While they were doing so, he “fell into a trance.”
The vision occurred three times, and in it all sorts of animals were descending from heaven that he was commanded to eat – some of whom were unclean by Jewish law. Peter argued at first because of this fact, but the voice said to him “What God has made clean, do not call common.” Peter would come to understand that this landmark vision was not referring just to animals and food, but also to men. It was certainly relevant to the events that were about to take place.
