Barnabas: courier of courage.
Single Session Bible Study


We've all had a few nicknames. Most we probably wouldn't own up to under oath, like Stinky, Pee Wee, Bird Legs, or Blockhead. A few, however, stick and sum up the man. The nickname Barnabas, for instance, means "Son of Encouragement." And that's exactly how this good, Spirit-filled, faithful man lived out his life. Although a seemingly behind-the-scenes character, Barnabas was on the frontlines instilling courage into the early Christians. This study will look at the leadership qualities found in a true encourager.
