Ship, The Port of Seleucia

Acts 13:4. April AD48.

Barnabas and Paul were sent on their way by the Holy Spirit. They went down to Seleucia and sailed from there to Cyprus.

When they arrived at Salamis, they proclaimed the word of God in the Jewish synagogues.

Mark was with them as their helper and he later wrote the Gospel of Mark.

Travel was slow and dangerous. Sometimes traveling by ship was quicker than walking.
Antioch of Syria was about 483 km or 300 miles north of Jerusalem. And about 26km or 16 miles inland from the Mediterranean seaport of Seleucia.
