Bible: Acts 2:42-47; 4:32-35; 11:27-30
The Fellowship of the Early Believers
2:42 They were devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, 1 to the breaking of bread and to prayer. 2 2:43 Reverential awe 3 came over everyone, 4 and many wonders and miraculous signs 5 came about by the apostles. 2:44 All who believed were together and held 6 everything in common, 2:45 and they began selling 7 their property 8 and possessions and distributing the proceeds 9 to everyone, as anyone had need. 2:46 Every day 10 they continued to gather together by common consent in the temple courts, 11 breaking bread from 12 house to house, sharing their food with glad 13 and humble hearts, 14 2:47 praising God and having the good will 15 of all the people. And the Lord was adding to their number every day 16 those who were being saved.

The Record of Terah
11:27 This is the account of Terah.
Terah became the father of Abram, Nahor, and Haran. And Haran became the father of Lot. 11:28 Haran died in the land of his birth, in Ur of the Chaldeans, 1 while his father Terah was still alive. 2 11:29 And Abram and Nahor took wives for themselves. The name of Abram’s wife was Sarai, 3 and the name of Nahor’s wife was Milcah; 4 she was the daughter of Haran, the father of both Milcah and Iscah. 11:30 But Sarai was barren; she had no children.
