- Some call Sunday by the name “the Lord’s day”, but that is not a biblical concept. Some bible-versions have that phrase in Revelation 1:10, but one must keep in mind that that passage does not refer to a Sunday. It appears that the vision which the apostle John saw and wrote about, refers to what will happen during the Day of the Lord in the “end time”.

- Look also under the heading “Worship”.
Sunset – The Passover lambs were to be killed “between the evenings”, Hebrew ben ha arbayim (Exodus 12:6, et cetera). Did that phrase refer to the time “between sunset and darkness” as some have claimed, or to the middle of the afternoon which is when the Jews killed their Passover lambs while Jesus at the same time gave his life as the Lamb of God? → rxa082.htm

- The word “synagogue” comes from old Greek.
- In the Old Testament, when English translations have “congregation” or “assembly” or similar, the Greek text of the Septuagint version (LXX) often has the noun sunagôgê. Exodus 16:10 and 22 and 35:4 and Numbers 8:9 and Joshua 22:17 are examples of this.
- The noun sunagôgê appears in more than 170 places in the Septuagint, used in different ways. The related verb sunagô (“to bring together”, “to gather” and so on), occurs more than 400 times in the Septuagint.
- The Greek text of the New Testament contains the noun sunagôgê some 57 times, and the related verb sunagô around 62 times.
- This is what ‘Intermediate Greek-English Lexicon’ by Liddell and Scott (Clarendon Press, 1889) has on the noun sunagôgê (συναγωγή):
- I. a bringing together, uniting, Plat.
2. a place of assembly, synagogue, NTest.
II. ς. πολέμου a levying of war, Thuc.
2. a gathering in of harvest, Polyb.
3. a drawing together, contracting, ς. στρατιᾶς a forming an army in column, Plat.; ς. τοῦ προσώπου a pursing up or wrinkling of the face, Isocr.
4. a collection of writings, Arist.
III. a conclusion, inference, id=Arist.
