Barnabas and Saul, being set apart with fasting and prayer, are sent forth by the Holy Ghost to the work of their calling. At Paphos Elymas the sorcerer opposing the gospel is smitten with blindness, and the deputy Sergius Paulus converted to the faith. Paul and his company come to Antioch in Pisidia: Paul preacheth Christ, and the necessity of faith in him unto justification. The Gentiles desire to hear the word again: many are converted. The envious Jews gainsay and blaspheme: the apostles profess to turn to the Gentiles, of whom many believe. The Jews raise a persecution, and expel Paul and Barnabas, who go to Iconium.
