This chapter reminds me of my hero – Barnabas. It was Barnabas that sold his property to help the poor saints in Jerusalem. It was Barnabas that befriend Saul (Paul) when no was convinced that he had been converted. In this chapter when a mixed congregation of Jews and Gentiles spring up in Antioch it was Barnabas the apostles sent to help guide this congregation as these two cultures merged as brethren. And it was Barnabas that went to Tarsus to find Saul (Paul) to work with him in Antioch, for Barnabas realized that Saul was the perfect man to help with this situation. It also allowed Saul to grow and gain confidence as a leader among God’s people, one of the reasons that Paul became the leader that he did was the belief and investment Barnabas made in Paul! I wanted to name our first son Barnabas – but that got shot down, oh well. What did you see in this chapter?
