So the church (assembly) was started in Acts 2? I don’t think so! It was started in the wilderness!
We have been led to believe that the 1st Century Assemblies were Gentiles who Yahusha called in place of YisraÉl!
We have also been led to believe that this church was formed in Acts 2!
LET’S EXAIME THAT AGAINST THE WORD
“This is the Mosheh who said to the children of Yisra’ĕl, ‘יהוה your Elohim shall raise up for you a Prophet like me from your brothers. Him you shall hear.’ “This is he who was in the assembly in the wilderness with the Messenger who spoke to him on Mount Sinai, and with our fathers, who received the living Words to give to us. Acts 7:37-38
So, the Fathers of the Assembly (church) were those at Mt Sinai! They did not just emerge in the 1st Century!
From a compound of G1537 and a derivative of G2564; a calling out, that is, (concretely) a popular meeting, especially a religious congregation (Jewish synagogue, or Christian community of members on earth or saints in heaven or both): – assembly, church.
