General Description and Positive Example: Barnabas (4:32-37)

"Admirable but impractical"—that's what human beings through the ages have said about the communal ideal. Still, we wonder, Is there a way we can live together in harmony which at the same time liberates us from selfishness and assures us of support when we need it? Luke says a resounding "Yes!" and points us to a corporate salvation blessing: the church's common life.
