Gathering Order

What should the people of God do when they gather? The Bible has a lot to say on this issue. There are multiple contexts and practices discussed in the Scriptures surrounding the meeting together and gathering / assembling /congregating of the people of God.

Doctrine

  3. 1 “For look! The day is about to come, burning like an oven, and all the arrogant and every ⌊evildoer⌋ will be stubble. The coming day will consume them,” says Yahweh of hosts. “It will not leave behind for them root or branch. 2 But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise, with healing in its wings, and you will go out and leap like ⌊fattened calves⌋. 3 You will trample down the wicked, for they will be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day that I am going to act,” says Yahweh of hosts. 4 “Remember the instruction of my servant Moses, which I commanded him at Horeb to all Israel, the rules and regulations. 5 Look! I am going to send to you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and awesome day of Yahweh! 6 And he will bring back the hearts of the fathers to the sons, and the hearts of the sons to their fathers, so that I will not come and strike the land with a ban.”

    Matthew 06 : 02-02 (LEB) See Exegesis
  6. 5 And whenever you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, because they love to stand and* pray in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, in order that they may be seen by people. Truly I say to you, they have received their reward in full!

    Matthew 06 : 05-05 (LEB) See Exegesis

  8. 17 But beware of people, because they will hand you over to councils, and they will flog you in their synagogues.

    Matthew 10 : 17-17 (LEB) See Exegesis
  9. 12 At that time Jesus went through the grain fields on the Sabbath. And his disciples were hungry, and they began to pluck off heads of grain and eat them.* 2 But when* the Pharisees saw it,* they said to him, “Behold, your disciples are doing what it is not permitted to do on the Sabbath!” 3 So he said to them, “Have you not read what David did when he was hungry, and those with him, 4 how he entered into the house of God and ate the bread of the presentation, which it was not permitted for him or for those with him to eat, but only for the priests? 5 Or have you not read in the law that on the Sabbath the priests in the temple violate the sanctity of the Sabbath and are guiltless? 6 But I tell you that something greater than the temple is here! 7 And if you had known what ⌊it means⌋, ‘I want mercy and not sacrifice,’ you would not have condemned the guiltless. 8 For the Son of Man is lord of the Sabbath.” 9 And going on from there he came into their synagogue. 10 And behold, there was a man who had a withered hand, and they asked him, saying, “Is it permitted to heal on the Sabbath?” in order that they could accuse him. 11 But he said to them, “What man will there be among you who will have one sheep and if this one fell into a pit on the Sabbath, will not take hold of it and lift it* out? 12 Then to what degree is a man worth more than a sheep? So then, it is permitted to do good on the Sabbath.” 13 Then he said to the man, “Stretch out your hand,” and he stretched it* out, and it was restored as healthy as the other one. 14 But the Pharisees went out ⌊and plotted⌋ against him in order that they could destroy him.

    Matthew 12 : 01-14 (LEB) See Exegesis
  10. 53 And it happened that when Jesus had finished these parables he went away from there. 54 And he came to his hometown and* began to teach them in their synagogue, so that they were amazed and said, “From where did this man get this wisdom and these miracles? 55 Is not this one the son of the carpenter? Is not his mother called Mary and his brothers James and Joseph and Simon and Judas? 56 And are not all his sisters with us? From where then did this man get all these things?” 57 And they were offended by him. But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own hometown and in his own household.” 58 And he did not perform many miracles in that place because of their unbelief.

    Matthew 13 : 53-58 (LEB) See Exegesis
  11. 15 “Now if your brother sins against you, go correct him between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. 16 But if he does not listen, take with you in addition one or two others, so that by ⌊the testimony⌋ of two or three witnesses every matter may be established. 17 And if he refuses to listen to them, tell it* to the church. But if he refuses to listen to the church also, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector. 18 “Truly I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you release on earth will be released in heaven. 19 Again, truly I say to you that if two of you agree on earth about any matter that they ask, it will be done for them from my Father who is in heaven. 20 For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there in the midst of them.”

    Matthew 18 : 15-20 (LEB) See Exegesis

  13. 21 And they went into Capernaum and immediately on the Sabbath he began to teach in the synagogue. A Man with an Unclean Spirit Healed 22 And they were amazed at his teaching, because he was teaching them like one who had authority, and not like the scribes.

    Mark 01 : 21-22 (LEB) See Exegesis
  14. 6 And he went out from there and came to his hometown, and his disciples followed him. 2 And when* the Sabbath came, he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him* were amazed, saying, “Where did this man get these things? And what is this wisdom that has been granted to this man, and the miracles such as these performed through his hands? 3 Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary and brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon? And are not his sisters here with us?” And they were offended by him. 4 And Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his hometown, and among his relatives, and in his own household.” 5 And he was not able to do any miracle in that place except to lay his hands on a few sick people and* heal them.* 6 And he was astonished because of their unbelief. And he was going around among the villages teaching.

    Mark 06 : 01-06 (LEB) See Exegesis
  15. 14 And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit to Galilee, and news about him went out throughout all the surrounding region. 15 And he began to teach* in their synagogues, and* was praised by all. Rejected at Nazareth 16 And he came to Nazareth, where ⌊he had been brought up⌋, and according to ⌊his custom⌋ he entered into the synagogue on the day of the Sabbath and stood up to read. 17 And the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him, and unrolling the scroll he found the place where it was written, 18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because of which he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to send out in freedom those who are oppressed, 19 to proclaim the favorable year of the Lord.” 20 And he rolled up the scroll and* gave it* back to the attendant and* sat down. And the eyes of everyone in the synagogue were looking intently at him. 21 And he began to say to them, “Today this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.” 22 And they were all speaking well of him, and were astonished at the gracious words that were coming out of his mouth. And they were saying, “Is this man not the son of Joseph?”

    Luke 04 : 14-22 (LEB) See Exegesis
  16. 31 And he came down to Capernaum, a town of Galilee, and was teaching them on the Sabbath. 32 And they were astounded at his teaching, because ⌊he spoke⌋ with authority. 33 And in the synagogue there was a man who had the spirit of an unclean demon, and he cried out with a loud voice, 34 “Ha! ⌊Leave us alone⌋, Jesus the Nazarene! Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are—the Holy One of God!” 35 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be silent and come out of him!” And after* throwing him down in their midst, the demon came out of him without hurting him at all. 36 And amazement came upon them all, and they began to talk* with one another, saying, “What word is this? For he commands the unclean spirits with authority and power, and they come out!” 37 And news about him went out into every place of the surrounding region.

    Luke 04 : 31-37 (LEB) See Exegesis
  17. 42 And when it* was day, he departed and* went to an isolated place.

    Luke 04 : 42-44 (LEB) See Exegesis
  18. 6 Now it happened that on another Sabbath he entered into the synagogue and was teaching, and a man was there, and his right hand was withered.

    Luke 06 : 06-06 (LEB) See Exegesis
  19. 10 Now he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath. 11 And behold, a woman was there* who had a spirit ⌊that had disabled her⌋ for eighteen years, and she was bent over and not able to straighten herself up completely. 12 And when he* saw her, Jesus summoned her* and said to her, “Woman, you are freed from your disability!” 13 And he placed his hands on her, and immediately she straightened up and glorified God. 14 But the ruler of the synagogue, indignant because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, answered and* said to the crowd, “There are six days on which it is necessary to work. Therefore come and* be healed on them, and not on the day of the Sabbath!” 15 But the Lord answered and said to him, “Hypocrites! Does not each one of you untie his ox or his* donkey from the feeding trough on the Sabbath and lead it* away to water it?* 16 And this woman, who is a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan bound ⌊eighteen⌋ long years—is it not necessary that she be released from this bond on the day of the Sabbath?” 17 And when* he said these things, all those who opposed him were humiliated, and the whole crowd was rejoicing at all the splendid things that were being done by him.

    Luke 13 : 10-17 (LEB) See Exegesis
  20. 1It is reported everywhere that there is sexual immorality among you, and sexual immorality of such a kind which does not even exist among the Gentiles, so that someone has the wife of his father. 2 And you are inflated with pride, and should you not rather have mourned, so that the one who has done this deed would be removed from your midst? 3 For although I* am absent in body but present in spirit, I have already passed judgment on the one who has done this in this way, as if I* were present. 4 In the name of our Lord Jesus, when* you are assembled, and my spirit, together with the power of our Lord Jesus, 5 I have decided* to hand over such a person to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, in order that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord. 6 Your boasting is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole batch of dough? 7 Clean out the old leaven in order that you may be a new batch of dough, just as you are unleavened. For Christ our Passover has been sacrificed. 8 So then, let us celebrate the feast, not with the old leaven or with the leaven of wickedness and sinfulness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. 9 I wrote to you in the letter not to associate with sexually immoral people. 10 By no means did I mean the sexually immoral people of this world or the greedy people and swindlers or idolaters, since then you would have to depart out of the world. 11 But now I have written to you not to associate with any so-called brother, if he is a sexually immoral person or a greedy person or an idolater or an abusive person or a drunkard or a swindler—with such a person not even to eat. 12 For what is it to me to judge those outside? Should you not judge those inside? 13 But those outside God will judge. Remove the evil person ⌊from among yourselves⌋.

    1 Corinthians 05 : 01-05 (LEB) See Exegesis
  21. 17 The elders who lead well must be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who labor by speaking and teaching. 18 For the scripture says, “You must not muzzle an ox while it* is threshing,” and “The worker is worthy of his wages.” 19 Do not accept an accusation against an elder except on the evidence of two or three witnesses. 20 Reprove those who sin in the presence of all, in order that the rest also may experience fear. 21 I testify solemnly before God and Christ Jesus and the elect angels that you observe these things without prejudice, doing nothing according to partiality. 22 Lay hands on no one hastily, and do not participate in the sins of others. Keep yourself pure. 23 (No longer drink only water, but use a little wine for your stomach and your frequent illnesses.) 24 The sins of some people are evident, preceding them to judgment, but for some also they follow after them. 25 Likewise also good works are evident, and those considered otherwise are not able to be hidden.

    1 Timothy 05 : 17-25 (LEB) See Exegesis
  22. 1 My brothers, do not hold your faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ with partiality. 2 For if someone enters into your assembly in fine clothing with a gold ring on his finger, and a poor person in filthy clothing also enters, 3 and you look favorably on the one wearing the fine clothing and you say, “Be seated here in a good place,” and to the poor person you say, “You stand or be seated there by my footstool,” 4 have you not made distinctions among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts?
