Returned from Jerusalem
Acts 12:25 (KJB) And Barnabas and Saul returned from Jerusalem, when they had fulfilled their ministry, and took with them John, whose surname was Mark.
It seems there is some confusion among modern biblical scholars in at least one Bible version concerning the direction of travel of these two men. If your Bible is worded that these two men were traveling towards Jerusalem rather than returning from there to Antioch, you might want to reconsider your choice of Bible.
Why? Because there is a big difference between coming from and going to a particular destination. Especially when the direction is worded wrong by error or changed on purpose concerning the travels of men of God in ancient biblical times which only serves to add confusion.
Sadly, this kind of error in one Bible will likely end up being found in other translations over time. This is how many biblical blunders can attempt to muddy the spiritual record. One small error or purposeful change can soon branch out into other verses and infect other versions, becoming larger spiritual gaffes with time. Even a slight change that does not seem too off the mark left to fester can grow to blight and marginalize God’s message when laden by a “correcting pen” of mankind.
It is important that we do not disregard known changes and errors, whether it be one verse or several in so-called modernized Bibles, for God has promised to divinely inspire and protect His Word and it needs no correcting or modernizing of divine content and such confusing work belongs to the twisted agenda of the god of this world.
Ultimately there is one Bible (without copyright) which agrees with God every time. It is a Bible you can trust without question. You see, God divinely inspired His Word to be preserved forever (Psalm 12:6-7). Knowing this and believing it is so with your heart, ought to affect the choice you make about the Bible you read and study.
