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).

A lifelong student of the Bible, Peter DeHaan, PhD, wrote the 700-page website ABibleADay.com to encourage people to explore the Bible. His main blog and numerous books urge Christians to push past the status quo and reconsider how they practice their faith in every area of their lives.
