Met in Temple Courts 77

Good News Teaching

The Temple CourtsActs 2.46 tells us 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," writes 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."

The Household Bond

Icon of MaryActs 11.14 tells us, "He will bring you a message through which you and all your household will be saved." In Acts 12.12 we also read, "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 tells us about Lydia's Household of Faith, "When she and the members of her household 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 Households of Faith?
