Jesus did not invent the word ‘ecclesia’
The Lord did not surprise
His followers with this word
It is a simple case of borrowing
At the time, it was the way the Romans spoke
This ‘ecclesia’ would take the fulfillment of His message to its prime
When the Greek army conquered a nation
They sent in an 'ecclesia'
To teach them the pattern of people’s behavior
They would establish and maintain control
The ecclesia were called out from the government in Greece and
Sent into the conquered nation,
Their purpose was to institute the policies, philosophies and
Culture upon the conquered nation
Rome followed that thought and practice
Therefore,when Jesus came He did not abolish this thought but enforced it!
