1st trip

45-49 AD
Acts 12:24-14:28
way: 2.500 km
team:Barnabas, Saul and John Mark.


The site of the first missionary journey is the island of Cyprus and Galatia, after which Paul will write his first message - a message to the Galatians.
The reason for choosing a place:
  1. Cyprus is the birthplace of Barnabas (4:36), first the leader was Barnabas.
  2. Then the order changes in place of Barnabas and Saul - Paul and Barnabas. Therefore, the mission goes to the homeland of Paul.
