Bible Term: Synagogue

A synagogue is a Jewish meeting place and house of prayer. In a strict sense, it is not a temple. Jesus often taught in synagogues (Matthew 13:54 et al) and the early church met in synagogues as well (Acts 13:14 et al), although they later met in houses (1 Corinthians 16:19 et al).
