    This work examines the dynamics of the Ananias and Sapphira episode in Acts and its role in the narrative of Luke-Acts. McCabe locates the passage within its literary context, and emphasizes the manner in which it is embedded in a discourse on the life . Acts is the book that reveals the power of the church. Therefore, when a church begins to dwindle, lose its power, and turn dull and drab in its witness, it needs desperately to get back into the spirit, expectation, knowledge and teaching of the book of Acts. In this book, the principles of the exchanged life -- "Not I, but Christ" -- is.

Saul has had a vision of his own, it seems, and it blinded him. God wants Ananias to heal Saul. Ananias is not certain this is a good idea.

A discourse concerning Ananias and Saphira wherein is laid open thier sin & punishment. By William Houghton (): Houghton, William: : Books. Ananias and Sapphira Bible Story Summary In the early Christianchurch in Jerusalem, the believers were so close they sold their excess land or possessions and donated the money so no one would go hungry.

This sharing of resources was not a formal requirement of the church, but those who participated were looked upon favorably. Account of Ananias and Sapphira The narrative with which this chapter commences is one which none but a veracious narrator would have inserted where it stands.

The last chapter concludes with a description of the unity of heart and soul which prevailed among the brethren, and expressly notices that all were filled with the Holy Ghost.

Martin Collins, finding a common denominator in the deaths of Ananias and Saphira, Nadab and Abihu, and Uzzah, suggests that all incidents occurred at a pivotal time of change in the history of the church, a time God desired to get the attention of all peo.

It is just a small story, tucked away in the Book of Acts, but to most people today the brief account of the death of Ananias and Sapphira stands as one of the most difficult and bewildering passages in the New Testament.

In this simple narrative, familiar to many Christians, Ananias and his wife Sapphira sold a piece of property and agreed together to keep some of the money for themselves.

1 But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession, 2 And kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles' feet.

3 But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land. The theologian John Stott writes that Ananias and Sapphira were not so much misers as they were thieves.

“They wanted the credit and the prestige for sacrificial generosity, without the inconvenience of it. Ananias / ˌ æ n ə ˈ n aɪ. ə s / and his wife Sapphira / s ə ˈ f aɪ r ə / were, according to the Acts of the Apostles chapter 5, members of the early Christian church in account records their sudden deaths after lying to the Holy Spirit about money.

This occurred in the first-century church to believers in Jesus Christ. The story of Ananias and Sapphira is a reminder to us today that God sees the heart (1 Samuel ), that He hates sin, and that He is concerned for the purity of His church (1 Corinthians.

Luke has a subtext which runs throughout the Book of Acts concerning the correct use of money by Christian believers. It begins with the downfall of Judas in Acts 1, celebrates the early believers having everything in common in Acts 4, contrasts the ideal behaviour of Barnabas with the hypocrisy of Ananias and Sapphira in Acts 5 and condemns.

[William Houghton, preacher at Bicknor in. There’s a reason why Ananias is emphasized in the Ananias and Sapphira story. Sapphira, his wife, is basically framed as being complicit in it, but it’s mostly Ananias’ problem. That’s how it’s presented, and it’s because there’s another Ananias later in the book who basically functions symbolically and literarily as the opposite.

Fifth, concerning the issue with Ananias and Sapphira, it is also clear that they were not killed by God because they kept some of the money.

Peter says that they are in trouble because they lied to God. They apparently told Peter that the money they were giving to the Church was all the money they had made from the selling of their property.
