Jews & Gentiles Both Gathered to Learn the Mosaic Law in the Synagogues!

By Maria Merola

© Copyright Double Portion Inheritance November 2013

The following study consists of a list of scriptures that I complied in response to some Christians who inaccurately have stated that neither our Messiah nor Paul preached the Towrah (Mosaic Law) to Gentiles on the Sabbath Days. 

The scriptures that I will present in this study will prove that the 1st Century Gentile converts went to the synagogues and learned the Towrah (Mosaic Law) along with the Yahuwdiy (Jews) every Sabbath day. 

As a matter of fact, there were no Christian Churches until the 3rd Century under the Roman Emperor Constantine in Rome. 

The word “church” is a very poor translation in our English Bible, as it comes from the root-word “Circe,” the Greek goddess of fertility. Circe was known in mythology for her magic spells and potions which she would use to turn men into pigs. How did she do such a thing? She served them her wine of fornication. Does this sound familiar?

Chazown (Revelation) 17:

4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

5 And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.

6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Yahuwshuwa: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

Whenever we see the English word for “church” in the scriptures, it is the Greek word “Ekklesia” which is #1577 in the Greek Strong’s Concordance: 

A gathering of citizens called out from their homes into some public place, an assembly; an assembly of the people convened at the public place of the council for the purpose of deliberating; the assembly of the Israelites.

The word “church,” should actually read “assembly.” The word “temple” is not the same thing as a synagogue. There was only one Temple of YaHuWaH in the entire world, which was in Jerusalem. The Greek word for “temple” is “naos,” but the Greek word in the New Testament for “synagogue” is “synagoge” #G4864. See the link below to listen to the recording where the man pronounces the word in Greek:

There are 41 New Testament verses below showing that Paul, Barnabbas, Silas and our Messiah, Yahuwshuwa preached in the synagogues to both Yahuwdiy (Jews) and Gentiles alike.

Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 4:23 And Yahuwshuwa went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.

Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 9:35 And Yahuwshuwa went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues,and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.

Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 12:9 And when he was departed thence, he [Yahuwshwua] went into their synagogue:

Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 13:54 And when he [Yahuwshuwa] was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence has this man this wisdom, and these mighty works?

Marqos (Mark) 1:21 And they went into Capernaum; and straightway on the sabbath day he [Yahuwshuwa] entered into the synagogue, and taught.

Marqos (Mark) 1:39 And he [Yahuwshuwa] preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and cast out devils.

Marqos (Mark) 3:1 And he [Yahuwshuwa] entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had a withered hand.

Marqos (Mark) 5:22 And, behold, there came one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet,

Marqos (Mark) 5:35 While he [Yahuwshuwa] yet spoke, there came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house certain which said, Your daughter is dead: why trouble you the Master any further?

Marqos (Mark) 5:36 As soon as Yahuwshuwa heard the word that was spoken, he said unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.

Marqos (Mark) 5:38 And he [Yahuwshuwa] came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and saw the tumult, and them that wept and wailed greatly.

Marqos (Mark) 6:2 And when the sabbath day was come, he [Yahuwshuwa] began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence has this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?

Luqas (Luke) 4:15 And he [Yahuwshuwa] taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all.

Luqas (Luke) 4:16 And he [Yahuwshuwa] came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read.

Luqas (Luke) 4:20 And he [Yahuwshuwa] closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.

Luqas (Luke) 4:33 And in the synagogue there was a man, which had a spirit of an unclean devil, and cried out with a loud voice,

Luqas (Luke) 4:38 And he [Yahuwshuwa] arose out of the synagogue, and entered into Simon’s house. And Simon’s wife's mother was taken with a great fever; and they besought him for her.

Luqas (Luke) 4:44 And he [Yahuwshuwa] preached in the synagogues of Galilee.

Luqas (Luke) 6:6 And it came to pass also on another sabbath, that he [Yahuwshuwa] entered into the synagogue and taught: and there was a man whose right hand was withered.

Luqas (Luke) 8:41 And, behold, there came a man named Jairus, and he was a ruler of the synagogue: and he fell down at Yahuwshuwa’s feet, and besought him that he would come into his house:

Luqas (Luke) 8:49 While he [Yahuwshuwa] yet spoke, there came one from the ruler of the synagogue’s house, saying to him, Your daughter is dead; trouble not the Master.

Luqas (Luke) 13:10 And he [Yahuwshuwa] was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath.

Luqas (Luke) 13:14 And the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because that Yahuwshuwa had healed on the sabbath day, and said unto the people, There are six days in which men ought to work: in them therefore come and be healed, and not on the sabbath day.

Yahuwchanon (John) 6:59 These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum.

Yahuwchanon (John) 18:20 Yahuwshuwa answered him, I spoke openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither the Jews always resort; and in secret have I said nothing.

Ma’aseh Shlichiym (Acts of the Apostles) 9:20 And straightway he [Paul] preached Messiah in the synagogues, that he is the Son of Elohiym.

Ma’aseh Shlichiym (Acts of the Apostles) 13:5 And when they were at Salamis, they preached the word of Elohiym in the synagogues of the Yahuwdiy (Jews): and they had also Yahuwchanon (Yahuwchanon (John)) to their minister.

Ma’aseh Shlichiym (Acts of the Apostles) 13:14 But when they departed from Perga, they [Paul & Barnabbas] came to Antioch in Pisidia, and went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and sat down.

Ma’aseh Shlichiym (Acts of the Apostles) 13:15 And after the reading of the Towrah [law] and the prophets the rulers of the synagogue sent unto them, saying, You men and brethren, if you have any word of exhortation for the people, say on.

Ma’aseh Shlichiym (Acts of the Apostles) 13:42 And when the Yahuwdiy (Jews) were gone out of the synagogue, the Gentiles besought that these words might be preached to them the next sabbath.

Ma’aseh Shlichiym (Acts of the Apostles) 14:1 And it came to pass in Iconium, that they [Paul & Barnabbas] went both together into the synagogue of the Yahuwdiy (Jews), and so spoke, that a great multitude both of the Yahuwdiy (Jews) and also of the Greeks believed.

The following verses are about Gentiles from Jerusalem, Ephesus & Corinth, learning the Towrah (Mosaic Law) in the synagogues together with the Yahuwdiy (Jews):

Ma’aseh Shlichiym (Acts of the Apostles) 15:21 For Mosheh (Moses) of old time has in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every sabbath day.

Ma’aseh Shlichiym (Acts of the Apostles) 17:1 Now when they [Paul & Silas] had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Yahuwdiy (Jews):

Ma’aseh Shlichiym (Acts of the Apostles) 17:10 And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Yahuwdiy (Jews).

Ma’aseh Shlichiym (Acts of the Apostles) 17:17 Therefore disputed he [Paul] in the synagogue with the Yahuwdiy (Jews), and with the devout persons, and in the market daily with them that met with him.

Ma’aseh Shlichiym (Acts of the Apostles) 18:4 And he [Paul] reasoned in the synagogue every sabbath, and persuaded the Yahuwdiy (Jews) and the Greeks.

Ma’aseh Shlichiym (Acts of the Apostles) 18:7 And he [Paul] departed thence, and entered into a certain man’s house, named Justus, one that worshipped Elohiym, whose house joined hard to the synagogue.

Ma’aseh Shlichiym (Acts of the Apostles) 18:8 And Crispus, the chief ruler of the synagogue, believed on YHWH with all his house; and many of the Corinthians hearing believed, and were baptized.

Ma’aseh Shlichiym (Acts of the Apostles) 18:19 And he [Paul] came to Ephesus, and left them there: but he himself entered into the synagogue, and reasoned with the Yahuwdiy (Jews).

Ma’aseh Shlichiym (Acts of the Apostles) 18:26 And he [Paul] began to speak boldly in the synagogue: whom when Aquila and Priscilla had heard, they took him unto them, and expounded unto him the way of Elohiym more perfectly.

Ma’aseh Shlichiym (Acts of the Apostles) 19:8 And he [Paul] went into the synagogue, and spoke boldly for the space of three months, disputing and persuading the things concerning the kingdom of Elohiym.

In conclusion, we can see that the concept of a “Christian Church” did not even come into existence until the 3rd Century.

The Roman Emperor Constantine banned “all things Jewish” from the Roman Empire.
