Saint Barnabas did not disappear after the quarrel with Saint Paul.
This happy, loveable servant of the Lord knew God's purpose for life, defiantly obeyed the spirit of the Lord, and overcame opposition, failure, rejection, and hardships to obtain an eternal reward through faith in Jesus.
Travis L. Matthews celebrates Saint Barnabas's accomplishments and argues he should be more highly regarded. He explores his motives, conduct, and accomplishments. The portrait he conveys is a great servant of the Lord.
Barnabas was an ambassador for Christ who knew God's purpose, recognized the time, and made contacts to accomplish God's will. Barnabas changed the world by helping people make transitions in turbulent times. Two apostles trained by Barnabas were instrumental in developing Christianity into a worldwide faith.
Saint Barnabas became an instrument of God to facilitate the transition from Law to Grace. By completing his mission, the message of salvation was brought to the world and Jesus became the Lord of our lives.
