Bible: Acts 15:36-41
Paul and Barnabas Part Company
15:36 After some days Paul said to Barnabas, “Let’s return 1 and visit the brothers in every town where we proclaimed the word of the Lord 2 to see how they are doing.” 3 15:37 Barnabas wanted to bring John called Mark along with them too, 15:38 but Paul insisted 4 that they should not take along this one who had left them in Pamphylia 5 and had not accompanied them in the work. 15:39 They had 6 a sharp disagreement, 7 so that they parted company. Barnabas took along 8 Mark and sailed away to Cyprus, 9 15:40 but Paul chose Silas and set out, commended 10 to the grace of the Lord by the brothers and sisters. 11 15:41 He passed through Syria and Cilicia, strengthening 12 the churches.
