Feast of St. Barnabas, Apostle and Martyr (June 11)   Leave a comment

Above:  St. Barnabas Episcopal Church, Valdosta, Georgia, U.S.A.

Son of Encouragement

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The Assigned Readings for This Feast:

Isaiah 42:5-12

Psalm 112

Acts 11:19-30, 13:1-3

Matthew 10:7-16

The Collect:

O God, that we may follow the example of your faithful servant Barnabas, who, seeking not his own renown but the well­being of your Church, gave generously of his life and substance for the relief of the poor and the spread of the Gospel; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Acts 4:36-37 records how one Joseph, a Levite born in Cyprus, sold a field he owned and turned over the proceeds to the apostles.  Thus the character surviving Eleven apostles called Barnabas, which means “son of encouragement,” enters the Biblical narrative.  St. Barnabas, a Diaspora Jew, introduced St. Paul to the other apostles, who were understandably cautious with regard to a man who had persecuted Christians.  Sts. Barnabas and Paul traveled together for years, enduring hardships, founding churches,  and spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ in partnership until they parted over a disagreement about St. Mark, who had left their company to return to Jerusalem.  Later Sts. Barnabas and Mark traveled to Cyprus, where Barnabas founded the church.  There he died in 61 C.E., at Salamis, as a martyr, probably by stoning.

St. Barnabas dedicated his life to encouraging others in their faith.  May we do likewise.
