Acts 2:
44 "And all who believed were together and had all things in common; 45 and they sold their possessions and goods and distributed them to all, as any had need."

"They banded together out of necessity because the Jewish Theocracy crashed down on anybody that followed "the way"...which is what they were called back then." - decath

It was just another expression of that oneness and connectedness thing about heaven that Jesus prayed about in the Garden. The new testament is full of references to it. For instance, "neither Jew nor Greek, male nor female," and "do unto others as you would have them do unto you," and "you reap what you sow," and the parable about everyone getting paid the same thing at the end of the day.

It all parallels the holographic principle, oneness and connectedness, etc. "all things in common."
