Question 12 The first century Christians had weekly

Question 12 The first century Christians had weekly church services on Sundays is evident from 1 Corinthians 16:1, 2 where church offering was taken on the first day of the week, it says. Answer Answer from from clearbibleanswers.org clearbibleanswers.org Answer

Let us read the concerned passa Answer Answer from from clearbibleanswers.org clearbibleanswers.org 1 Corinthians 16:1, 2 Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye. 2 Upon the first day of the week let

every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come. Thats apostle Paul again! Answer Answer from from clearbibleanswers.org clearbibleanswers.org Was that a Church Service?

Not at all! Answer Answer from from clearbibleanswers.org clearbibleanswers.org Please note: *There is NO mention of a church service, preaching, or prayer, at all! *There is NO mention of a church offering at all! Rather, Paul is talking about collection

for the saints and NOT collection for the Church Answer Answer from from clearbibleanswers.org clearbibleanswers.org Regarding the collection for the saints, the apostle says, As I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye IF it were the weekly church offering then WHY did the apostle give order ONLY to

the churches of Galatia, and NOT to ALL churches? Church offering has to be collected by all churchesrich and poor! Answer Answer from from clearbibleanswers.org clearbibleanswers.org IF it were the regular church offering then what does that there be no gatherings when I come, mean? Would the practice of collecting weekly

church offering stop after Paul visited them? IF it were a weekly church offering then when Paul came there should have been a special offertory and NOT no gathering of offering! Answer Answer from from clearbibleanswers.org clearbibleanswers.org Having seen that it was NOT a church service, or weekly church offering that

was collected, let us now proceed to see what it REALLY was. Answer Answer from from clearbibleanswers.org clearbibleanswers.org In Corinth there was weekly wors only on Sabbaths and NOT Sundays! Answer

Answer from from clearbibleanswers.org clearbibleanswers.org Acts 18:1, 4, 11 After these things Paul departed from Athens, and came to Corinth 4 And he reasoned in the synagogue every sabbath, and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks. 11 And he continued there a

year and six months, teaching the word of God among them. Answer Answer from from clearbibleanswers.org clearbibleanswers.org 1 years has 78 Sabbaths. And every Sabbath Paul met with bothJews and

Greeksteaching the word of God to them. And there is NO mention at all even of a single first-day-ofthe-week worship! Answer Answer from from clearbibleanswers.org clearbibleanswers.org Let us again look at our text 1 Corinthians 16:1 Now concerning the collection for the saints

Where would this collection go to? 1 Corinthians 16:3 To bring your liberality unto Jerusalem. Answer Answer from from clearbibleanswers.org clearbibleanswers.org Look at a parallel passage from Pauls writing itself Romans 15:25, 26 But now I go unto Jerusalem to minister unto the saints.

to make a certain contribution for the poor saints which are at Jerusalem. Why were there "poor saints" in Jerusalem? Answer Answer from from clearbibleanswers.org clearbibleanswers.org Acts 11:28-30 Great dearth throughout all the world: which came to pass in the days of Claudius Caesar. 29 Then the disciples, every man

according to his ability, determined to send relief unto the brethren which dwelt in Judaea: 30 Which also they did, and sent it to the elders by the hands of Barnabas and Saul. Answer Answer from from clearbibleanswers.org clearbibleanswers.org Lets once again look at our text

1 Corinthians 16:2 Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come. Answer Answer from from clearbibleanswers.org clearbibleanswers.org Let every one of you lay by him in store RSV: Put something aside and store it up

So it is NOT a collection done in the church but to put something aside and store it up. Store it up WHERE?-- by him, which obviously meansin his own home. Weymouths New Testament: Put on one side and store up at his home Answer Answer from from clearbibleanswers.org clearbibleanswers.org WHY did the apostle specify Upon the first day

of the week (1 Corinthians 16:2) Answer Answer from from clearbibleanswers.org clearbibleanswers.org The apostle believed in systematic giving. And the weekly-wage-payment was common, like we have today the popular monthly-wage-payment.

Answer Answer from from clearbibleanswers.org clearbibleanswers.org The believers met every Sabbath in Corinth (Acts 18:4). And after reading Pauls epistle on the Sabbath when the church gathered together, the very next day they were to get into action of

sorting out and laying in store in their homes their contribution (most likely in kind, than cash), to the poor saints at Jerusalem! Answer Answer from from clearbibleanswers.org clearbibleanswers.org Upon the first day of the week (1 Cor. 16:2)

The word week appears 10 times in the NT. And the Greek word is sabbaton which is the Hebrew equivalent for Shabbath or Sabbath. So the synonym (another name) for the week is Sabbath, which means the week CANNOT be measured WITHOUT the Sabbath, as the Sabbath is the pivot or hub of the weekly cycle! Answer Answer from from clearbibleanswers.org clearbibleanswers.org

Upon the first day of the week (1 Corinthians 16:2) Literally meansthe first day from the Sabbath Answer Answer from from clearbibleanswers.org clearbibleanswers.org IF the Sabbath was irrelevant after Calvary

then WHY did all the NT writers continue to use the word Sabbaton to measure the days of the week? Answer Answer from from clearbibleanswers.org clearbibleanswers.org The SABBATH WAS, IS, and

the glorious center on which WILL ROTATES! BE the weekly cycle Answer Answer from from clearbibleanswers.org clearbibleanswers.org That was the Answer to If the book of the law is the first five books of Moses, that was nailed to the cross, then

the book of the law contains the 10 Commandments twice written (Exodus 20 and Deuteronomy 5), which means the 10 Commandments are nailed as well! Question 12 Answer Answer from from clearbibleanswers.org clearbibleanswers.org
