Just a reminder as to the intent of the story of Ananias and Sapphira . The story is not literally true. You can't kill brethren in church , haul them out to the dumpster and dispose of them and not expect some inquiry from the Romans who might not take kindly to murder in the Church of God, (The Holy Spirit did it. Uh huh) or from relatives who might wonder why their mom and dad, uncle and aunt, son or daughter , grandpa or grandma did not come home from church today.
And too...any other sin, doubt or denial about Jesus can be forgiven or overlooked, but this one on MONIES not given to the Apostles is a death wish. Imagine that!
While the intent of the story escapes the modern reader, the simple fact is that it would not have escaped the original audience. The story was written to warn the readers in Luke and Paul's community of believers about following Peter instead of Paul.
If you think Peter and Paul both spoke the same thing and loved each other, you haven't done your homework. Luke was making fun of the "Great Apostle Peter" with a tale for his readers about two church people who said they would do one thing...give all to the church, and did another...held back. Even as a kid I never understood this withholding of what was theirs to be a crime worthy of death. At any rate, the irony in the story that it is The Great Peter pronouncing judgment on these folk when everyone also knew that Peter said HE would do one thing...never leave Jesus, and did another...denied him.
In other words, don't follow Peter.
The idea of all things common was very short lived phenomenon in the early church who thought Jesus was going to return almost any minute. It was not a long term practice nor did they think it would be. I am sure many sincere people gave then and lost their shirts to the early Apostles as well as we all know Jesus did not return for them.
As time went on and on and Jesus did not return the apologetics were written into the cannon such as:
2 Peter 3:
Most scholars agree that 2 Peter is a forgery, or to be more kind, pseudopigraphical, , written long after Peter was gone but in his name. It was written to address the problem of Jesus not having returned and in classic form blamed the members or scoffers who noticed Jesus had not returned and their friends in the church were dying off. They are accused of being willingly ignorant and should have understood that a day with God is not the same as a day for man. Of course they were not told this fact until after Jesus had failed to return in a timely manner. This is a pure apologetic written by someone in the name of Peter later in church history when , true to form, the Church could not admit to being simply mistaken, so they had to rewrite the story which also blamed those who brought Jesus failure to return "soon" to their attention.
