Acts 4:36

_ _ Joses, etc. — This is specified merely as an eminent example of that spirit of generous sacrifice which pervaded all.

_ _ son of consolation — no doubt so surnamed from the character of his ministry.

_ _ a Levite — who, though as a tribe having no inheritance, might and did acquire property as individuals (Deuteronomy 18:8).

_ _ Cyprus — a well-known island in the Mediterranean.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 4:32-37.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 4:36

A son of consolation — Not only on account of his so largely assisting the poor with his fortune; but also of those peculiar gifts of the Spirit, whereby he was so well qualified both to comfort and to exhort.
