  1. I always liked Barnabas. And I never knew Levites weren’t permitted to own property, but just did some research. In Numbers 35:2, it says, “Command the sons of Israel that they give to the Levites from the inheritance of their possession cities to live in; and you shall give to the Levites pasture lands around the cities.” Perhaps his portion of this gift of land is what he sold.

    • Possibly. Don’t forget that the Levites worked in the temple. They weren’t farmers or tradesmen, they didn’t earn big paychecks from the temple service; how could they support their families? That’s what Numbers is dealing with; those lands could have been sold or operated by hired men for sustenance.

      Of course, there is a big difference between “the Levites” and an individual Levite.
