1. the fellowship

1.1. John 13:34–35 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”

1.1.1. Ephesians 4:1–6 I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call—one Lord, one faith, one immersion, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. Acts 24:14–16 But this I confess to you, that according to the Way, which they call a sect, I worship the God of our fathers, believing everything laid down by the Torah and written in the Prophets, having a hope in God, which these men themselves accept, that there will be a resurrection of both the just and the unjust. Acts 24:22 But Felix, having a rather accurate knowledge of the Way, Acts 19:9 But when some became stubborn and continued in unbelief, speaking evil of the Way before the congregation... Acts 22:4 I persecuted this Way to the death, binding and delivering to prison both men and women, Acts 9:1–2 ...asked him for letters to the synagogues at Damascus, so that if he found any belonging to the Way, men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem. Acts 18:25 He had been instructed in the Way of the Lord. Acts 18:26 when Priscilla and Aquila heard him, they took him aside and explained to him the Way of God more accurately. Acts 11:26 For a whole year they met with the assembly and taught a great many people. And in Antioch the disciples were first called christ-i-anos (of Messiah).

1.1.2. Acts 14:23 And when they had appointed elders for them in every assembly, with prayer and fasting they committed them to the Lord in whom they had believed. Titus 1:5–9 This is why I left you in Crete, so that you might put what remained into order, and appoint elders in every town as I directed you 1 Timothy 3:1–7 The saying is trustworthy: If anyone aspires to the office of overseer, he desires a noble task. Therefore an overseer must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not a drunkard, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. He must manage his own household well, with all dignity keeping his children submissive, for if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how will he care for God’s church? He must not be a recent convert, or he may become puffed up with conceit and fall into the condemnation of the devil. Moreover, he must be well thought of by outsiders, so that he may not fall into disgrace, into a snare of the devil. Titus 1:5–9 This is why I left you in Crete, so that you might put what remained into order, and appoint elders in every town as I directed you—if anyone is above reproach, the husband of one wife, and his children are believers and not open to the charge of debauchery or insubordination. For an overseer, as God’s steward, must be above reproach. He must not be arrogant or quick-tempered or a drunkard or violent or greedy for gain, but hospitable, a lover of good, self-controlled, upright, holy, and disciplined. He must hold firm to the trustworthy word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to rebuke those who contradict it. 1 Timothy 5:19–22 Do not admit a charge against an elder except on the evidence of two or three witnesses. As for those who persist in sin, rebuke them in the presence of all, so that the rest may stand in fear. In the presence of God and of Christ Yeshua and of the elect angels I charge you to keep these rules without prejudging, doing nothing from partiality. Do not be hasty in the laying on of hands, nor take part in the sins of others; keep yourself pure. 1 Peter 5:1–3 So I exhort the elders among you, as a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Messiah, as well as a partaker in the glory that is going to be revealed: shepherd the flock of God that is among you, exercising oversight, not under compulsion, but willingly, as God would have you; not for shameful gain, but eagerly; not domineering over those in your charge, but being examples to the flock. 1 Timothy 5:17–18 Let the elders who rule well be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in preaching and teaching. For the Scripture says, “You shall not muzzle an ox when it treads out the grain,” and, “The laborer deserves his wages.”

1.1.3. 1 Corinthians 14:26 What then, brothers? When you come together, each one has a song, a lesson, a revelation, a tongue, or an interpretation. Let all things be done for building up. 1 Corinthians 12:8–10 For to one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom, and to another the utterance of knowledge.., to another faith..., to another gifts of healing..., to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another the ability to distinguish between spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Messiah dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. Romans 12:4–8 For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Messiah, and individually members one of another. Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness. 1 Corinthians 12:18 But as it is, God arranged the members in the body, each one of them, as he chose.

1.1.4. Ephesians 4:11–12 And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Messiah 1 Corinthians 12:27–28 And God has appointed in the assembly first apostles, second prophets, third teachers... 1 Corinthians 9:2 If to others I am not an apostle, at least I am to you, for you are the seal of my apostleship in the Lord. Romans 1:1 Paul, a servant of Messiah Yeshua, called to be an apostle, set apart for the good news of God, 2 Corinthians 12:12 The signs of a true apostle were performed among you with utmost patience, with signs and wonders and mighty works. Galatians 2:7–8 On the contrary, when they saw that I had been entrusted with the good news to the uncircumcised, just as Peter had been entrusted with the gospel to the circumcised (for he who worked through Peter for his apostolic ministry to the circumcised worked also through me for mine to the Nations) Romans 11:13–14 Now I am speaking to you Nations. Inasmuch then as I am an apostle to the Nations, I magnify my ministry in order somehow to make my fellow Jews jealous, and thus save some of them. Acts 13:1 Now there were in the assembly at Antioch prophets... 1 Corinthians 14:29 Let two or three prophets speak, and let the others weigh what is said. Acts 11:27–30 Now in these days prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch. And one of them named Agabus stood up and foretold by the Spirit that there would be a great famine over all the world (this took place in the days of Claudius). Acts 21:10–11 a prophet named Agabus came down from Judea. And coming to us, he took Paul’s belt and bound his own feet and hands and said 1 Corinthians 14:4 ...the one who prophesies builds up the assembly Acts 21:8 and we entered the house of Philip the evangelist, who was one of the seven, and stayed with him. Acts 8:5–7 Philip went down to the city of Samaria and proclaimed to them the Messiah. And the crowds with one accord paid attention to what was being said by Philip, when they heard him and saw the signs that he did. For unclean spirits, crying out with a loud voice, came out of many who had them, and many who were paralyzed or lame were healed. Acts 8:12 But when they believed Philip as he preached good news about the kingdom of God and the name of Yeshua Messiah, they were baptized, both men and women. 2 Timothy 4:1–5 I charge you... proclaim the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching.... As for you, always be sober-minded, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry. Acts 13:1 Now there were in the assembly at Antioch ...and teachers... Acts 15:35 But Paul and Barnabas remained in Antioch, teaching and proclaiming the word of the Lord, with many others also. Hebrews 5:12–14 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the basic principles of the oracles of God. You need milk, not solid food, for everyone who lives on milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, since he is a child. But solid food is for the mature, for those who have their powers of discernment trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil. 2 Timothy 2:1–2 You then, my child, be strengthened by the grace that is in Messiah Yeshua, and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also. 1 Timothy 4:13 Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to exhortation, to teaching. Acts 15:6 The apostles and the elders were gathered together to consider this matter. Acts 20:17 Now from Miletus he sent to Ephesus and called the elders of the assembly to come to him. Acts 20:7–8 On the first day of the week, when we were gathered together to break bread, Paul talked with them, intending to depart on the next day, and he prolonged his speech until midnight. There were many lamps in the upper room where we were gathered. Acts 5:12 And they were all together in Solomon’s Portico. Acts 2:1–4 When the day of the Feast of Weeks arrived, they were all together in one place. Acts 20:16 For Paul had decided to sail past Ephesus, so that he might not have to spend time in Asia, for he was hastening to be at Jerusalem, if possible, on the day of Pentecost.

1.1.5. Acts 2:44–45 And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. Romans 15:25–27 At present, however, I am going to Jerusalem bringing aid to the saints. For Macedonia and Achaia have been pleased to make some contribution for the poor among the saints at Jerusalem. For they were pleased to do it, and indeed they owe it to them. For if the nations have come to share in their spiritual blessings, they ought also to be of service to them in material blessings. Acts 11:27–30 Now in these days prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch. And one of them named Agabus stood up and foretold by the Spirit that there would be a great famine over all the world (this took place in the days of Claudius). So the disciples determined, every one according to his ability, to send relief to the brothers living in Judea. And they did so, sending it to the elders by the hand of Barnabas and Saul. 1 Thessalonians 4:10–12 aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we instructed you, so that you may walk properly before outsiders and be dependent on no one. Ephesians 4:28 Let the thief no longer steal, but rather let him labor, doing honest work with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with anyone in need. 2 Thessalonians 3:6–12 Now we command you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Yeshua Messiah, that you keep away from any brother who is walking in idleness and not in accord with the tradition that you received from us. For you yourselves know how you ought to imitate us, because we were not idle when we were with you, nor did we eat anyone’s bread without paying for it, but with toil and labor we worked night and day, that we might not be a burden to any of you. It was not because we do not have that right, but to give you in ourselves an example to imitate. For even when we were with you, we would give you this command: If anyone is not willing to work, let him not eat. For we hear that some among you walk in idleness, not busy at work, but busybodies. Now such persons we command and encourage in the Lord Yeshua Messiah to do their work quietly and to earn their own living. Acts 6:1–6 ...widows were being neglected in the daily distribution. And the twelve summoned the full number of the disciples and said,... brothers, pick out from among you seven men of good repute, full of the Spirit and of wisdom, whom we will appoint to this duty... These they set before the apostles, and they prayed and laid their hands on them. 1 Timothy 3:8–13 Deacons likewise must be dignified, not double-tongued, not addicted to much wine, not greedy for dishonest gain. They must hold the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. And let them also be tested first; then let them serve as deacons if they prove themselves blameless. Their wives likewise must be dignified, not slanderers, but sober-minded, faithful in all things. Let deacons each be the husband of one wife, managing their children and their own households well. 1 Timothy 5:9–11 Let a widow be enrolled if she is not less than sixty years of age, having been the wife of one husband, and having a reputation for good works: if she has brought up children, has shown hospitality, has washed the feet of the saints, has cared for the afflicted, and has devoted herself to every good work. But refuse to enroll younger widows, for when their passions draw them away from Messiah, they desire to marry Acts 4:32–35 Now the full number of those who believed were of one heart and soul... There was not a needy person among them James 2:15–16 If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that?

2. the breaking of bread

2.1. Luke 22:19–20 ...“This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” And likewise the cup after they had eaten, saying, “This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.

2.1.1. 1 Corinthians 11:23 For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Yeshua on the night when he was betrayed took bread...

2.1.2. 1 Corinthians 5:7–8 Cleanse out the old leaven that you may be a new lump, as you really are unleavened. For Messiah, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. Let us therefore celebrate the festival, not with the old leaven, the leaven of malice and evil, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. 1 Corinthians 11:33–34 So then, my brothers, when you come together to eat, wait for one another—if anyone is hungry, let him eat at home—so that when you come together it will not be for judgment. Jude 12 These are hidden reefs at your love feasts, as they feast with you without fear...

2.2. Acts 2:46–47 And day by day... breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts

2.2.1. 1 Timothy 4:4–5 For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, for it is made holy by the word of God and prayer. Romans 14:1–3 As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions. One person believes he may eat anything, while the weak person eats only vegetables. Let not the one who eats despise the one who abstains, and let not the one who abstains pass judgment on the one who eats, for God has welcomed him. Romans 14:20–21 Do not, for the sake of food, destroy the work of God. Everything is indeed clean, but it is wrong for anyone to make another stumble by what he eats. It is good not to eat meat or drink wine or do anything that causes your brother to stumble.

2.2.2. 1 Peter 4:9 Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. Romans 12:13 seek to show hospitality. Hebrews 13:2 Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.

3. the prayers

3.1. Ephesians 5:18–20 And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit, addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart, giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Yeshua Messiah,

3.1.1. Luke 24:53 and were continually in the temple blessing God. Acts 2:46 And day by day, attending the temple together... Acts 1:14 All these with one accord were devoting themselves to prayer, together with the women and Mary the mother of Yeshua, and his brothers. Acts 6:4 But we will devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word.” Acts 16:16 As we were going to the place of prayer... Acts 10:9 The next day, as they were on their journey and approaching the city, Peter went up on the housetop about the sixth hour to pray. Acts 16:13 And on Shabbat day we went outside the gate to the riverside, where we supposed there was a place of prayer, and we sat down and spoke to the women who had come together. Acts 5:12 And they were all together in Solomon’s Portico. Acts 3:1 Now Peter and John were going up to the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth hour.

3.1.2. Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Messiah dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. Acts 4:31 And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness. Acts 16:25–26 About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them, and suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken. Acts 13:2–3 While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” Then after fasting and praying they laid their hands on them and sent them off. Acts 14:23 And when they had appointed elders for them in every assembly, with prayer and fasting they committed them to the Lord in whom they had believed. Acts 2:1–4 When the day of the Feast of Weeks arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.

3.2. Ephesians 6:17–19 ...the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the good news

3.2.1. Acts 12:5 So Peter was kept in prison, but earnest prayer for him was made to God by the assembly. Acts 12:12 When he realized this, he went to the house of Mary, the mother of John whose other name was Mark, where many were gathered together and were praying. 2 Corinthians 1:11 You also must help us by prayer, so that many will give thanks on our behalf for the blessing granted us through the prayers of many.

3.2.2. 1 Timothy 2:1–4 First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions... God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:8 I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling; Colossians 4:2–3 Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word Acts 4:23–25 When they were released, they went to their friends and reported what the chief priests and the elders had said to them. And when they heard it, they lifted their voices together to God and said, “Sovereign Lord, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and everything in them, who through the mouth of our father David, your servant, said by the Holy Spirit, “‘Why did the nations rage, Acts 4:29–30 And now, Lord, look upon their threats and grant to your servants to continue to speak your word with all boldness, while you stretch out your hand to heal, and signs and wonders are performed through the name of your holy servant Yeshua.”

4. the apostle’s teaching

4.1. Luke 24:44–49 everything written about me in the Torah of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled... that the Messiah should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that repentance for the forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things. And behold, I am sending the promise of my Father upon you. But stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high.” Matthew 28:19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations,...

4.1.1. Matthew 28:20 ...immersing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit... Hebrews 6:1–2 ...and of instruction about immersions,... Acts 2:36–38 Repent and be immersed every one of you in the name of Yeshua Messiah for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Acts 18:8 Crispus, the ruler of the synagogue, believed in the Lord, together with his entire household. And many of the Corinthians hearing Paul believed and were immersed. 1 Corinthians 1:14–15 I thank God that I immersed none of you except Crispus and Gaius, so that no one may say that you were immersed in my name. Acts 19:5–6 On hearing this, they were immersed in the name of the Lord Yeshua. And when Paul had laid his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they began speaking in tongues and prophesying. Acts 8:14–17 Now when the apostles at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent to them Peter and John, who came down and prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit, for he had not yet fallen on any of them, but they had only been immersed in the name of the Lord Yeshua. Then they laid their hands on them and they received the Holy Spirit. 1 Corinthians 12:13 For in one Spirit we were all immersed into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and all were made to drink of one Spirit

4.1.2. Matthew 28:20 ...teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you Hebrews 6:1–2 ...a foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, and of instruction about immersions, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment. Hebrews 6:1–2 ...a foundation of repentance from dead works Hebrews 6:1–2 ...and of faith toward God Hebrews 6:1–2 ...and of instruction about immersions Hebrews 6:1–2 ...and of instruction about... the laying on of hands Acts 14:23 And when they had appointed elders for them in every assembly, with prayer and fasting they committed them to the Lord in whom they had believed. Titus 1:5–9 This is why I left you in Crete, so that you might put what remained into order, and appoint elders in every town as I directed you Hebrews 6:1–2 the resurrection of the dead and eternal judgment. Matthew 5:19 Therefore whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. Mark 4:24 And he said to them, “Pay attention to what you hear: with the measure you use, it will be measured to you, and still more will be added to you. Matthew 10:27 What I tell you in the dark, say in the light, and what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops. Luke 6:46–47 “Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do what I tell you? Everyone who comes to me and hears my words and does them, I will show you what he is like: Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Messiah dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom,

4.1.3. Acts 20:20–21 I did not shrink from declaring to you anything that was profitable, and teaching you in public and from house to house, testifying both to Jews and to Greeks of repentance toward God and of faith in our Lord Yeshua Messiah. Acts 5:42 And every day, in the temple and from house to house, they did not cease teaching and proclaiming that the Messiah is Yeshua. Acts 5:20–21 “Go and stand in the temple and speak to the people all the words of this Life.” And when they heard this, they entered the temple at daybreak and began to teach. Acts 19:8–10 And he entered the synagogue and for three months spoke boldly, reasoning and persuading them about the kingdom of God... took the disciples with him, reasoning daily in the hall of Tyrannus. This continued for two years, so that all the residents of Asia heard the word of the Lord, both Jews and Greeks. Acts 14:21–22 When they had proclaimed the good news to that city and had made many disciples, they returned to Lystra and to Iconium and to Antioch, strengthening the souls of the disciples, encouraging them to continue in the faith, and saying that through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God.
