A Shared Concern While We Work Out Theology

"It is thus significant that Paul in probably his earliest letter, as he was still fashioning his relationship with the original apostles in Jerusalem, notes that all easily agreed 'that we should continue to remember the poor, the very thing I was eager to do' (Gal. 2:10). While theology and territory for ministry were still being hashed out, no debate centred (sic?) around the need to help the poor."

- Craig Blomberg, Neither Poverty Nor Riches, 178
