The believers were in one mind and shared their possessions. Annais and his wife Sapphira sold a piece of property, but kept back a portion of the money for himself.
Peter asked Annais why he lied to the Holy Spirit, and Annais fell down and died. His wife, without knowing this came and was asked if that was the right price for the property. She lied, and Peter told her that she will die and be burried by the men who also burried her husband. At that moment, she fell down and died also.
