"Putting proceeds ‘at the feet of the apostles’ (Acts 4:37; cf. Acts 11:30) is an idiomatic expression like sitting, being, or falling at the feet of someone. Sitting at someone's feet, means being a disciple. Falling at someone's feet is a gesture to submission to authority. Putting things at someone's feet, means placing them at someone's disposition. In all this, the community abided by the teaching of Jesus whose concern for the poor and needy marked His life from the beginning” (all bold emphasis mine, sp).
"In the synagogue at Nazareth, Jesus announced that he was anointed to bring good news to the poor (Luke 4:18). Asked by the messengers of John the Baptist whether He was the one to come, Jesus answered..."the poor have the gospel preached to them (7:22). At the home of a leading Pharisee, Jesus challenged His host to invite the poor... (14:13). That is when one of the fellow guests exclaimed, 'Blessed is the one who will dine in the kingdom of God!' In reply, Jesus told the parable of the great feast where the poor, crippled, lame, and blind were invited. Later there would be the parable of the rich man "who dined sumptuously each day" while a poor man named Lazarus would have gladly eaten the scraps that fell from the rich man's table. In Jesus' teaching, sharing with the poor is closely related to sharing a meal together."
