Acts 11:29

Context
11:29 So the disciples, each in accordance with his financial ability, 1  decided 2  to send relief 3  to the brothers living in Judea.

1 tn So BDAG 410 s.v. εὐπορέω.

2 tn Or “determined,” “resolved.”

3 tn Grk “to send [something] for a ministry,” but today it is common to speak of sending relief for victims of natural disasters.

sn The financial relief reflects the oneness of the church, meeting the needs of another (even racially distinct) community. Jerusalem, having ministered to them, now received ministry back. A later collection from Greece is noted in Rom 15:25-27, but it reflects the same spirit as this gift.
