OK, Does anyone have a good dissertation on what exact Written Letter of God's Law Saphira and Annanias violated to get an instant death sentence? My contention is that they didn't violate a specific written 'letter' of God's Law. But, they did violate a higher NT concept... I am thinking that they Violated the intent of Jesus' Prayer in John 17... They violated Unity and Love in the Body of Christ... True they bore false witness against themselves but not against a neighbor... They didn't steal, as Peter says the money was theirs to do with as they pleased... Thanks, Mike Sr.
