Acts 4:23-37

  1. Verses 23-31. Prayer. Going back to their fellow Christians, the disciples pray.
    Trace the threefold reason (verses 24-28), request (verses 29, 30) and result (verse 31) found in their prayer. Could you pray with such boldness and willingness in a similar tough situation?
  2. In this insight into the fellowship of the early church the sincere self-sacrifice of Barnabas is compared with the hypocrisy and greed of Ananias and Sapphira
  3. In 4:32-37 what essential of fellowship are demonstrated? See one result of them in verse 33
  4. What made the sin of Ananias and Sapphira so grave and what led to it? Why was such a divine judgment necessary? What result did it produce?
