    And Barnabas determined - Greek: willed, or was disposed to (ἐβουλεύσαντο ebouleusanto).

    John ... - See the notes on Acts 12:12. He had been with them before as a traveling companion, Acts 12:25; Acts 13:5. He was the son of a sister of Barnabas Colossians 4:10, and it is probable that Barnabas' affection for his nephew was the main reason for inducing him to wish to take him with him in the journey.
