The First Journey
Paul set out in the company of Barnabas from Antioch in Syria. From Seleucia they sailed to Salamis on the island of Cyprus, then travelled overland to Paphos. Thence they crossed to Perga in Pamphylia, and journeyed inland to Antioch in Pisidia, Iconium, Lystra, and Derbe, and back via the same cities to Attalia, where they embarked to return to Syrian Antioch (Acts 13–14 ). Opinion is divided as to whether the Epistle to the Galatians is addressed to the churches of southern Galatia, established on this journey, or those of northern Galatia founded on his second journey.
