And the tidings came to the ears of the Church that was at Jerusalem, touching these things, and they sent Barnabas as far as Antioch. Who when he was come, and had seen the grace of God, rejoiced ; and he exhorted them all with purpose of heart to continue in the Lord. For he was a good man, and full of the Holy Ghost and of faith. And a great multitude was added to the Lord.

(Chap. xiii.) Now there were in the Church which was at Antioch, prophets and doctors, among whom was Barnabas, and Simon, who was called Niger, and Lucius of Cyrene, and Manahen who was the foster-brother of Herod the Tetrarch, and Saul. And as they were ministering to the Lord, and fasting, the Holy Ghost said to them: Separate me Saul and Barnabas, for the work whereunto I have taken them.

Then they fasting and praying, and imposing their hands upon them, sent them away.

The brother also shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the son : and the children shall rise up against the parents, and shall put them to death ; and you shall be lated by all men for my name's sake : but be that shall persevere to the end, he shall be saved.
