Featured Passage: Acts 16-20
After visiting many congregations, Paul and Barnabas returned to Jerusalem for a special conference. When the conference was over Paul wanted to return to the congregations and see how the brethren were doing. Barnabas decided he wanted to bring a young man named John Mark along with them on this trip, but Paul didn’t like the idea. He was opposed to him coming because he had left the previous tour before the mission was completed (Acts 13:13). Since Paul and Barnabas could not agree, Barnabas took John Mark and left for Cyprus, while Paul chose another man, Silas, to go with him.
