Who was Jesus main audience?
Here Jesus says that his target audience are the sinners rather than the righteous. Too often in church, our focus is on the righteous rather than the sinners.
Who attends a synagogue?
The synagogue is the Jewish place of worship, but is also used as a place to study, and often as a community centre as well. Orthodox Jews often use the Yiddish word shul (pronounced shool) to refer to their synagogue. In the USA, synagogues are often called temples.
Which group of people worship in a synagogue?
Synagogue, also spelled synagog, in Judaism, a community house of worship that serves as a place not only for liturgical services but also for assembly and study.
What type of people pray in a synagogue?
Synagogues are consecrated spaces used for the purpose of prayer, reading of the Tanakh (the entire Hebrew Bible, including the Torah), study and assembly; however, a synagogue is not necessary for Jewish worship. Halakha holds that communal Jewish worship can be carried out wherever ten Jews (a minyan) assemble.
Who was the audience of Matthew’s Gospel?
Matthew’s gospel is clearly written for a Jewish Christian audience living within the immediate proximity of the homeland itself. Matthew’s is the most Jewish of all the gospels.
Which Gospel was written for a Gentile audience?
In contrast to either Mark or Matthew, Luke’s gospel is clearly written more for a gentile audience. Luke is traditionally thought of as one of Paul’s traveling companions and it’s certainly the case that the author of Luke was from those Greek cities in which Paul had worked.
What was the synagogue used for in Jesus time?
As the Gospels report, it was Jesus’s custom to attend synagogue gatherings on the Sabbath (Luke 4:16), and it was also the primary venue for his teaching and preaching activities outside of Jerusalem (Mark 1:38; Matt 4:23; Luke 4:14–15, 43–44; John 18:20).
Why is the synagogue so important?
The synagogue is the central point for life as a Jewish community- it is where many rites of passages take place. It is important as a place of study e.g. it is where a young boy/girl will learn Hebrew and study the Torah in preparation for their bar/bat mitzvahs.
What is a B not mitzvah?
(B’not mitzvah is the plural of bat mitzvah and means that a group of girls or women is going through the rite. When more than one boy or a boy and a girl go through the ritual, it’s called b’nai mitzvah.)
What’s the difference between a synagogue and a temple?
Temple, in the general sense, means the place of worship in any religion. Temple in Judaism refers to the Holy Temple that was in Jerusalem. Synagogue is the Jewish house of worship. This is the main difference between the two words.
What is the most important part of a synagogue?
The Aron Hakodesh, often known as the ark, is the most important place inside all synagogues. The Aron Hakodesh is where the Torah scroll is kept. The ark is usually wooden and has the features of a cupboard, and will often have a curtain or door.
Do Jews pray God?
The Jewish people serve God by study, prayer and by the observance of the commandments set forth in the Torah. This faithfulness to the biblical Covenant can be understood as the “vocation,” “witness” and “mission” of the Jewish people.
