A beautiful object lesson on Barnabas and God's name for us
Today in the Bible story, the disciple Joseph is given a nickname by the apostles. He is henceforth called Barnabas, the comforter. Nicknames can be both negative and very powerfully positive and define people's identity, as for example with Jacob who is called Israel (God Struggles) by God. In this object lesson we will look with the children at positive nicknames for them.
