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.

                                     St. Barnabas was a member of the early Christian community in Jerusalem.   
                                        He sold some land that he owned and gave the proceeds to the community.
