Wesley's Notes for Acts 4:37


4:37 Having an estate - Probably of considerable value. It is not unlikely that it was in Cyprus. Being a Levite, he had no portion, no distinct inheritance in Israel.


People's Bible Notes for Acts 4:37


Ac 4:37 Having land. Possibly a possession somewhere in Judea. See Nu 35:1-8 De 10:8,9. As a Levite, Barnabas would have rights in the Levitical possessions. This is the first mention of this celebrated companion of Paul's missionary labors. He next appears on a mission to Antioch (Ac 11:22).
