Paul is trying desperately to raise money to help the believers in Israel during an intense famine that threatened to destroy the “mother congregation” where faith in Yeshua had begun. They needed help badly, and Paul reached out to all the new congregations he had started to help. Asking for donations is always a touchy thing to do. How did Paul navigate this situation – what reasoning did he use – to win the day?
