The apostles at Jerusalem added nothing to the Gospel Paul preached. They only asked him to remember the poor. This brings the poor into focus together with the Gospel. It raises the importance of remembering the poor in the church. Christians must hold to the truth of the Gospel. We must not forget the poor either. We may have our misgivings and reservations. Yet, it doesn’t change what the Scripture calls our attention to. What is the relationship between the Gospel and the poor? How should we understand this exhortation?
