Kent Philpott's Bible Study Sermons

Sep 27, 2017

Luke now goes back to a time after the scattering of believers following the death of Stephen, some of whom had travelled to Phoenicia, Cyprus, and Antioch. Some of those who went to Antioch preached Jesus to Gentiles, and a great number of them believed. This event was reported to the Church in Jerusalem which then sent Barnabas to Antioch. Barnabas, the encourager, did encourage the growing number of new converts to Christ. Barnabas then went north to Tarsus to find Paul to bring him to Antioch to help disciple the new Christians. It was in Antioch that followers of Jesus were first named “Christian.”
