Barnabas

 

Pronunciation:  BAHR-nuh-bus

Occurrences: 2 - Commentary Only

 

 

See:  Cephas, Saul/Paul

 

Summary:  Mentioned only in Azrael’s Commentary, Barnabas was not counted among the original apostles of Yeshua, but rather, became Saul’s first convert while they were both in Qumran (Damascus) (c. 42 CE). After a Saul stirs up contention within the ‘First Church’ in Jerusalem, he is sent by the apostles back to Tarsus. Barnabas was later sent by the apostles to join Paul in his missionary efforts in the Gentile world (AZC - Paul).

 

 

Azrael’s Commentary - Cephas; para. 4

 

[...] It was Cephas’ intent to go check on the churches which were being created through the preaching of Paul. Cephas was asked to undertake this project by the original apostles of Yeshua, of which Paul was not a member. None of the apostles really trusted Paul. He was too educated, too pushy and always took it as his right to tell the apostles what he thought they should be doing. And while it was the original apostles who encouraged Paul to go into the Gentile world to preach, they only did so to get him out of Israel where he would be seen as a nuisance and a handicap to the Jewish Christian churches. Yet because the original apostles did not trust Paul, they sent with him the newest member of the apostleship, Barnabas, to watch over him.[...]

 

 

Azrael’s Commentary - Joseph of Arimathea; para. 2

 

[...] Joseph of Arimathea was one of the most devoted disciples of Yeshua. He freely gave to the poor, and he used his vast wealth to finance the missions of Paul, Silas, Barnabas, Cephas and Matthew.[...]
