Closely associated with St. Paul, St. Barnabas was one of the 72 apostles and an important figure in the early church. Tradition has St. Barnabas preaching in Alexandria and Rome and the founder of the Cypriote Church. He was stoned to death at Salamis about the year 61.
A Jew, born in Cyprus and named Joseph, he sold his property, gave the proceeds to the Apostles, who gave him the name Barnabas, and lived in common with the earliest converts to Christianity in Jerusalem. He persuaded the community there to accept St. Paul as a disciple, was sent to Antioch, Syria, to look into the community there, and brought St. Paul there from Tarsus.
With St. Paul he brought Antioch's donation to the Jerusalem community during a famine, and returned to Antioch with John Mark, his cousin. The three went on a missionary journey to Cyprus, Perga (when John Mark went to Jerusalem), and Antioch in Pisidia, where they were so violently opposed by the Jews that they decided to preach to the pagans. Then they went on to Iconium and Lystra in Lycaonia, where they were first acclaimed gods and then stoned out of the city, and then returned to Antioch in Syria.
When a dispute arose regarding the observance of the Jewish rites, Saints Paul and Barnabas went to Jerusalem, where, at a council, it was decided that pagans did not have to be circumcised to be baptized. On their return to Antioch, St. Barnabas wanted to take John Mark on another visitation to the cities where they had preached, but St. Paul objected because of John Mark's desertion of them in Perga. St. Paul and St. Barnabas parted, and St. Barnabas returned to Cyprus with Mark; nothing further is heard of him, though it is believed his rift with Paul was ultimately healed.
