Introduction to Acts Chapters 15 - 21

Paul is now in the thick of persecution and adversity at every turn as he takes the Good News throughout the known world. What I always find so inspiring about Paul and Barnabas is that after they've fled from or been thrown out of a city because of persecution, they return back there later in an effort to encourage the churches they started there. Is it courage, gall, defiance, faithfulness, or love for the people they left behind? Perhaps all or many. Let's find out.

I always wonder at the fact that Paul and Barnabas' disagreement was recorded in the Book of Acts. Some people I know believe that Paul was right and that Barnabas was wrong but I do not think ti was put there to show who was right and who was wrong but rather to show that Paul and Barnabas were human and let the reader realize that it was through the power of God that Paul worked miracles and not of himself.

I enjoyed the quiz, ls!

I believe you are absolutley right NW. And I also think that it happened for other reasons too. It showed the hcaracter of Barnabas as a loyal friend, advocate and encourager, and that Paul had some valid concerns. And perhaps that God used their separation to further the gospel. Barnabas and Mark were able to partner up and evangelize in a different area and Mark got the opportunity to be used, proven faithful, and be menotred by Barnabas. It also sounds like in the verses following that God had ordained Silas to be Paul's new partner in ministry and they had their own dynamic and calling. Look what God did through them. I love your insights and comments always. God bless.
