Bible: Acts 4:32-37
Conditions Among the Early Believers
4:32 The group of those who believed were of one heart and mind, 1 and no one said that any of his possessions was his own, but everything was held in common. 2 4:33 With 3 great power the apostles were giving testimony 4 to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was on them all. 4:34 For there was no one needy 5 among them, because those who were owners of land or houses were selling 6 them 7 and bringing the proceeds from the sales 4:35 and placing them at the apostles’ feet. The proceeds 8 were distributed to each, as anyone had need. 4:36 So Joseph, a Levite who was a native of Cyprus, called by the apostles Barnabas (which is translated “son of encouragement”), 9 4:37 sold 10 a field 11 that belonged to him and brought the money 12 and placed it at the apostles’ feet.
