Biblical person: Ananias (and Sapphira)

Creative activities and ideas based on the biblical figure of Ananias (and Sapphira)

Ananias and Sapphira were a married couple in the early Christian church who attempted to deceive the apostles by selling their property and giving only a portion of the proceeds to the church while claiming to have given the full amount. When confronted by the apostle Peter, they both fell dead. Their story is recorded in the book of Acts in the New Testament and serves as a warning against hypocrisy and deceit within the church community.
