  • 12: 25 Barnabas, Saul, And John Mark Return To Jerusalem

    12:25 Barnabas, Saul, and John Mark returned to Jerusalem. The Church Commissioned Paul and Barnabas 12:25-13:3 God’s Providence The Gospel’s inclusivity Panel Title: Seriously, Reaching the Ends of the Earth The Apostles had preached the Gospel to Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaritans. Now, the church, partially through the ministry of Paul, whom Acts provides plenty of evidence, is going to emphatically proclaim the inclusive Gospel to the Gentiles. Beginning with the church’s commission over Paul’s foreign mission to revisiting the churches that he had established, the Gospel was reaching the ends of the Earth. A man, Timothy, who was half Greek, also became a fantastic church figure. Furthermore, the advancement of the Gospel was because of God’s…

  • Why Is Barnabas Important

    Chapter Six BARNABAS When the Church at Antioch of Syria, consisting mostly of Greeks, came to the attention of the elders at Jerusalem, they chose Barnabas to visit the church there and report on the Lord’s work in that area.

  • What Is Barnabas Importance In Acts

    How honoring would it be if your best friends nicknamed you "son of encouragement,” the same name that refers in the Bible to the ultimate comforter, the Holy Spirit? This happened, and it happened to a man named Barnabas. His first mention in Acts showed his humility by obedience to the Lord and laying himself aside, His introduction of Paul as a new believer shows His reverence and honor of the calling God places on people, and His split from his best friend to follow the call of the Lord even…

  • Book Of Acts: Chapter Summary

    Saul was out of the picture as recorded chapter 9. There was a plot to kill Saul, as a result, the Jewish brethren took him to Caesarea and sent him away to Tarsus. From Gal 1–2 we gather that Saul was away for approximately ten years until Barnabas found him. Luke indicates the challenge Barnabas had finding Saul because of the verb he used, “look” (anazēteō) (a na za tay o) means to (seek out, search through, make diligent search) this implied Barnabas had to search intently to find Saul.…

  • Exegetical Summary In Act 2

    parentheses “In what I am writing to you, before God, I do not lie!”, which seems like an interesting comment to make towards the Disciples. Paul comes back to Jerusalem 14 years later, though, (Galatians 2:1), with Barnabas and Titus. Paul has the chance to explain to the Twelve his Gospel of freedom from the Law. This does not go without Paul’s comment in Galatians 2:6, “And from those who were reputed to be something (what they were makes no difference to me; God shows no partiality)-those, I…

  • Peter And Paul's Outline Of Acts

    I found it interesting that, through the outline of Acts, Peter and Paul 's stories share many parallels; from their sermons, to their healing, and even the time they each spent in jail (p. 232). Luke puts a lot of emphasis on the persecution that Paul and his companions faced on their missionary journey. But it is interesting that they did not break any laws and have no intentions of over throwing those in power. So, the persecution they are receiving is all from personal and social prejudices…
