Barnabas

    Name given to Joseph (also called Joses), a Levite of Cyprus, who sold his land and gave the proceeds to the Apostles (Acts 4:36–37). Though not one of the original Twelve Apostles, he did become an Apostle (Acts 14:4, 14) and served on several missionary journeys (Acts 11:22–30; 12:25; 13–15; 1 Cor. 9:6; Gal. 2:1, 9; Col. 4:10).
