Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Acts 11:22

_ _ sent ... Barnabas ... as far as Antioch — implying that even on the way to Antioch he found churches to visit [Olshausen]. It was in the first instance, no doubt, a mission of inquiry; and no one could be more suitable to inquire into the proceedings of those Cyprians and Cyrenians than one who was himself a “Grecian” of Cyprus (Acts 4:36), and “a son of consolation.”
