Acts House Faith

Temple Courts

The Temple CourtsThe Book of Acts 2.46 informed us of the worship habits of the Early Christians that, "every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts." "Day after day," wrote Saint Luke in Acts 5.42, "in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Christ."

Household Bond

Icon of MaryActs 11.14 told us an angel appeared to Saint Peter in a dream saying, "He will bring you a message through which you and all your house will be saved." In Acts 12.12 we also read later, "When this had dawned on him, he went to the house of Mary the mother of John, also called Mark, where many people had gathered and were praying." Acts 16.15 furthermore told us about Lydia's House of Faith, "When she and the members of her house were baptized, she invited us to her home. 'If you consider me a believer in the Lord,' she said, 'come and stay at my house.' And she persuaded us." What did the Early Christians do in their House of Faith?
