The Kingdom: Individual Members of Jesus'
Their Devotion to Fellowship, Breaking of Bread
and Prayer (Acts 2:42)
"And day by
day continuing with
one mind in the temple, and breaking bread from
house to house, they were taking their meals
together with gladness and sincerity of heart,
praising God, and having favor with all the people.
And the Lord was adding to their number day by day
those who were being saved." Acts 2:46-47 (NAS)
"And on the first day of the
week, when we were gathered together to break
bread, Paul began talking to them, intending to
depart the next day, and he prolonged his message
until midnight." Acts 20:7 (NAS)
"On the first day of every
week let each one of you put aside and save, as he
may prosper, that no collections be made when I
come." 1 Corinthians 16:2 (NAS)
"For, in the first place,
when you come together as a church...20Therefore
when you meet together, it is not to eat the Lord's
Supper..." 1 Corinthians 11:19-20 (NAS)
According to these scriptures, when did these
individual members of Jesus' church meet to
break bread (the Lord's supper), to pray together,
to make a collection to help others, and to
fellowship in other ways?
- Once a month.
- On the first day of each week (Sunday) and
also during the week.
- Only on the seventh day of each week (the
Sabbath day or Saturday).
