Barnabas




Barnabas
1. One word that I feel describes Barnabas is encourager. For one his name mean Son of
Encouragement. He also encouraged his fellow apostles to continue the work of the Lord.
Another word is committed. Barnabas was committed to spreading the gospel of Jesus
Christ. He wanted to always serve God in everything he did. Barnabas was also a
teacher. He was constantly teaching the Jews and Gentiles about the love that God had
for them. Another word is love. He had a love for his fellow apostles and for the
people he taught about Jesus Christ. Finally, he was set apart. God set Barnabas apart
from others like He did Paul. He was different.

2. I think one of Barnabas’ most important values is how much love and devotion he had for
the unsaved people in the world. He had a deep desire to reach these people. Another
value that I feel Barnabas had was the boldness to witness. He knew that his life would
be in danger if preached the gospel but did it anyway.

3. I would like to have Barnabas as a friend today because he was a Godly man and loved
God. He would be a great encouragement to me and a example of how a man of God should act

It is in a greater sense a tale of two sons or two brothes. It is not surprising that these religions should share a common belief
