So Barnabas went to Tarsus to look for Saul, and when he had found him, he brought him to Antioch. For a whole year they met with the church and taught a great many people. And in Antioch the disciples were first called Christians. (Acts 11:25-26 ESV)
Потом Варнава пошел в Тарс искать Савла и, найдя его, привел в Антиохию. Целый год собирались они в церкви и учили немалое число людей, и ученики в Антиохии в первый раз стали называться Христианами. (Деяния 11:25-26 Russian)
O LORD my God, to you I lift up my soul on this new day that arrives with sparkling evidence of your grace and mercy to all people – especially those who love you and obey your beloved Son. Give us wisdom to recognize valuable workers like Barnabas who worked diligently to encourage the work of the apostle Paul. Help all faithful followers of Christ to unite upon the Spirit inspired name Christian. Moreover, wake us up to the moral responsibility to behave like Christ in all things. Stifle the efforts of those who throw cold water on the blessed work of spreading the gospel to all nations. We earnestly pray in the precious name of Jesus.
