Saved FROM what and TO what?
The early Jesus Way community held resources in common and – in that sharing – were able to meet the needs of all. The book of Acts reports that the Holy One daily added to the numbers of this early Jesus Way community “those who were being saved”. Which causes us to wonder: Saved FROM what? And saved TO or FOR what?
