One Size Shoe For All Feet

John Weemes, The Christian Synagogue, p. 241:

The judicial Law only obliged the Jews in Judea; No Levite might have a possession in Israel: yet Acts 4.36 a Levite of Cyprus sold his possession, and laid it down at the feet of the Apostles; this Levite dwelling in Cyprus, might have a possession, although not in Judea.

The judicial Law belonged only to the people in Judea, therefore Carolostadius, who urged the Judicial Law to be observed in all Countries, did as those who would have one shoe to serve all sorts of feet: So the Jews were to blame, who urged the observation of the Ceremonial Law to the Gentiles.
