Abstract This article examines statements about money and other forms of material wealth in the New Testament. After a general survey of the surprisingly many occurrences of money, coins, wealth or property and the contexts in which they appear, the article describes the spiritual dangers involved in the desire for and use of money as addressed by various New Testament books. A further section is devoted to an often neglected aspect, namely the positive chances of money rightly used that are also mentioned. Money, otherwise also called mammon, can be used to support those in need and to further the kingdom of God and even to express spiritual truths and bonds. This is followed by a summary of New Testament statements on obtaining money legitimately and using it properly. A final section reflects on the way how Christians today are to use the means that have been entrusted to them.
