Joseph Barnabas: His Life and Legacy
Although often neglected in New Testament scholarship, Joseph Barnabas, the Levite from Cyprus, deserves recognition as a founding member of the Christian Church, pioneer of the mission to the Gentiles, and patron of the apostle Paul. Bernd Kollman?s Joseph Barnabas studies not only the theological and biographical development, and the cultural context surrounding the life of influential Joseph Barnabas, but also the Barnabas tradition of the early church. Kollmann includes texts of post-biblical ?Acts of Barnabas? as well as other apocryphal writings about him. Chapters include ?Barnabas in the Early Christian Community,? ?Barnabas in Antioch,? ?The First Missionary Journey,? ?The Apostolic Council and the Break with Paul,? and ?Later Traditions About Barnabas.??Kollmann does a magnificent job of piecing together what is known about Barnabas to construct a credible picture of his life and ministry. Although it is a short work, this book evidences thorough research and thoughtful writing. It is a useful reference for New Testament scholars.? Catholic Books Review?. . . the most effective argument to date concerning the methodological problems associated with defining Gnosticism.? The Catholic Biblical Quarterly?Kollman?s scholarly work will be of use to Scripture scholars and students of early Church history.? Catholic Library World
