People's Bible Notes for Acts 11:25

Ac 11:25 Then departed Barnabas to Tarsus to seek Saul. Seeing the great opening, he knew that Saul was the best man to aid him. His trip to Tarsus is supposed to have been in A.D. 43; Saul to have departed from Jerusalem in A.D. 39; hence to have spent about four years in missionary work in "Syria and Cilicia" (Ac 15:41 Ga 1:21). See PNT "Ac 9:30".

    "What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common." We, as the children of God, should discern what is sacred and holy, in the same Spirit as our Father in heaven. The redemption of a man's soul, and all that goes into his salvation, is precious; and true conversions rare. Insomuch as we should carefully scrutinize to assure someone's right repentance and faith; by so much our joy when we see it!
