I am new to this site and therefore this question may not be appropriate or may have been discussed before, if so, please disregard.
In studying the greek word EKKLHSIA, I was wondering if anyone has a thought or discernment about why Jesus may have chosen this particilar word rather than other existing Hebrew or Greek words for assembly, congregation, synagogue, temple, etc.
[List moderator's note: let's not, in this forum, at least, speculate on
what went on in the mind of Jesus, but surely the question may be
raised regarding factors making different available Greek words apt
for the meaning(s) given ultimately to the NT Koine word EKKLHSIA.
Also, may I call attention to new and old subscribers once again that
we prefer people NOT use the MIME format for B-Greek messages
but that they be sent in plain-text ASCII. Thanks. cwc]
In His Name,
