"Where did Jesus go to church?" And other questions

I challenge anyone to read the NT and tell me where Jesus went to church.

Furthermore, where did Peter go to church? Paul? Where did the 3000 baptized on Pentecost go to church?

Where did the church go to church before there was a place called church?

How did children develop spiritually when there was no Sunday school?

How were the poor served before the "We Care" ministry?

How did the church grow when there was no place to go?

How did the church worship without a place of worship?

How did people know that they were part of the church before their was a Bible?

Did the Pharisees treat the Old Testament like Evangelicals treat the New Testament?

If the church is spiritual Israel, the who are the spiritual Gentiles? And can they be "saved?"

Where does the white go when the snow melts?

Jesus went to church in the synagogue of Nazareth on the Sabbath (Luke 4:16), but surely not every Sabbath, because it would have been a long walk from some of the other places he visited and He might have had to walk through Samaria to get there (horrors!). So maybe He skipped a few Sabbaths, or visited other synagogues.

And Acts 2:46 proves that Hondas used to be much bigger, because all 3,000 went to temple daily and met in one Accord. Which is where the "We Care" ministry began, in the previous verse. (Those ancient Accords must have had big trunks, too.)

You had to ask!
