Product Description
Who were Barnabas and Paul? Was Paul an angry loner, misogynist, legalist, and curmudgeon, or hero and martyr? Through point and counterpoint, the author unravels Paul's message by looking at his relationship with Barnabas. The result is a fresh portrait of the Paul we only think we know and Barnabas an otherwise unheralded apostle.

When the Church cannot condemn or kill a leader who upsets the status quo, it either canonizes the individual and controls his image (as with Paul) or pushes him off into relative obscurity (as with Barnabas). Paul and Barnabas started out as inseparable, close friends and colleagues until a conflict tore them apart. Barnabas of Cyprus faded into relative obscurity, while Paul of Tarsus became, apart from Jesus himself, the most influential figure in the history of Christianity and, arguably, the most maligned. By exploring their common journey, we can move beyond myths and assumptions. Theirs was a partnership that, quite literally, changed the world.

The book contains study questions for individual or group study.

Barnabas and Paul were close friends and colleagues until conflict tore them apart. Barnabas is barely remembered, while Paul became, apart from Jesus himself, the most influential figure in the history of Christianity. Why did the Church canonize one man and push the other into relative obscurity? Through point and counterpoint, author C. K. Robertson unravels Paul’s message by looking at his relationship with Barnabas, giving us a fresh portrait of both men and of a partnership that, quite literally, changed the world.
