Hi to all , and in Acts 8:1 , we have Saul consenting to the death of Stephen . Two things stick out in verse 1 ; #1 , this Church is in Jerusalem . #2 , And most of the Church were scattered . #3 , EXCEPT the ones who stayed behind , the Apostles . Then in verse 3 , Saul , he made Havock of the church , entering into every house , and haling men and women committed them to prison . Then , in Gal 1:13 , as Paul looks back , " how that beyond measure I persecuted the EKKLESIA/ASSEMBLY of God . What , then is the name of this EKKLESIA/ ASSEMBLY mentioned in Acts 8:1 and in Gal 1:13 ?? #1 , was it Jews only ? #2 , combo , of Jews and Gentiles , and if so, give a verse ! #3 , Can it be called the Assembly of God ? Gal 1:13 ?? #4 , Were the called an Christian Assembly ?? #5 , Is it a Messianic Assembly ? #6 , Does it make a difference ?? What say you ??
