Those had been scattered in the persecution because of Stephan travelled as far as Phoenicia and Cyprus, but they preached only to the Jews. However many came to Antioch and to the Greeks and preached the Gospel of the Lord Jesus. And the hand of God was with them and they were converted. But Barnabas came there from Jerusalem
