They only [made one stipulation], that we were to remember the poor, which very thing I was also eager to do. (Read: Galatians 2:1-10).
10 Paul had already shown a concern for the poor at the time of the famine visit when he traveled to Jerusalem with Barnabas as a representative of the church at Antioch (Acts 11:27-30). At the time of the council he was reminded of this good work and encouraged to pursue it. Out of this request, with which he was in great sympathy, arose the collection from among the Gentile churches that occupied so large a part in Paul's later thought and writings (cf. Acts 24:17; Rom 15:26; 1 Cor 16:1-4; 2 Cor 8-9).
