|And with great power, the Apostles were rendering testimony to the Resurrection of Jesus Christ our Lord. And great grace was in them all.
|And neither was anyone among them in need. For as many as were owners of fields or houses, selling these, were bringing the proceeds of the things that they were selling,
|and were placing it before the feet of the Apostles. Then it was divided to each one, just as he had need.
|Now Joseph, who the Apostles surnamed Barnabas (which is translated as ‘son of consolation’), who was a Levite of Cyprian descent,
|since he had land, he sold it, and he brought the proceeds and placed these at the feet of the Apostles.
