Title: St. Barnabas
Post by: CyrilSebastian on November 22, 2019, 07:30:14 PM
Though not one of the Twelve Apostles, St. Barnabas is considered an Apostle by the Church.   
He was a Jew of the tribe of Levi. He was born in Cyprus.     
His success in preaching prompted the Apostles to change his name of Joseph to that of Barnabas.
