24 But (A)the word of God increased and multiplied.

25 (B)And Barnabas and Saul returned from[a] Jerusalem when they had completed their service, bringing with them (C)John, whose other name was Mark.

Barnabas and Saul Sent Off

13 Now there were in the church at Antioch (D)prophets and (E)teachers, (F)Barnabas, Simeon who was called Niger,[b] Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen a lifelong friend of (G)Herod the tetrarch, and Saul. While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, (H)the Holy Spirit said, (I)“Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul (J)for the work to which I have called them.” Then after fasting and (K)praying they laid their hands on them and (L)sent them off.
