  • Term 2: kaloì = morally good, noble, praiseworthy Is every steward good at his job? Consider John Mark: Acts 13:Now Paul and his companions put out to sea from Paphos and came to Perga in Pamphylia; but John left them and returned to Jerusalem. Acts 15:36-39 After some days Paul said to Barnabas, “Let us return and visit the brethren in every city in which we proclaimed the word of the Lord, and see how they are.” 37 Barnabas wanted to take John, called Mark, along with them also. 38 But Paul kept insisting that they should not take him along who had deserted them in Pamphylia and had not gone with them to the work. 39 And there occurred such a sharp disagreement that they separated from one another, and Barnabas took Mark with him and sailed away to Cyprus.

For I am ready not onlyto be bound, but even to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.” 14 And since he wouldnot be persuaded, we fell silent, remarking, “The will of the Lord be done!” 15 After these days wegot ready and started on our way up to Jerusalem.
