(Exodus 12:16) (Leviticus 23:2, 3) The Greek word “ekklesia” is usually rendered congregation, assembly, or bringing together. (Acts 7:38; 13:43) (Hebrews 12:23) (James 2:2) Large crowds assembled before Jesus Christ. One of those occasions happened on the Mount of Olives at the Sermon on the Mount. This is recorded at Matthew 5:1 through 7:29. Holy Spirit was poured out on those assembled on Pentecost 33 C.E. (Acts 2:1-4) It was the custom for early Christians to meet together. (Acts 11:26) (Hebrews 10:23-25) (James 2:1-9)
