Acts 2:46, Did Christians Worship in the Temple?

Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts

//Answer to today’s question: yes. Christianity was merely an offshoot of Judaism. It essentially was Judaism with one important claim: that the Messiah had arrived.

So long as there was a Temple in Jerusalem, Christians continued to visit there. It was at least a decade after the Temple was destroyed, and many decades after Jesus died, before the rift between Christians and Jews became severe enough for Jews to put the Christians out of the Synagogue. That is when writings began to crop up in the Bible that appear anti-Semitic.

Here are a few more verses that verify that the earliest Christians continued Temple worship:

One day Peter and John were going up to the temple at the time of prayer—at three in the afternoon. –Acts 3:1

The apostles performed many signs and wonders among the people. And all the believers used to meet together in Solomon’s Colonnade. –Acts 5:12 (Solomon’s porch is part of the Temple)

But during the night an angel of the Lord opened the doors of the jail and brought them out. “Go, stand in the temple courts,” he said, “and tell the people all about this new life.” –Acts 5:21

Day after day, in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Messiah. –Acts 5:42

    Christianity was not taught by Jesus.Jesus observed all religious Jewish rites in his lifetime. Christianity is therefore a strange religion to the memory of Jesus. Paul, a Roman who never met Jesus is the founder of Christianity.
