There was no church during the days of Jesus; it did not come until after his death, buriel and resurrection. Acts 2
The question of when the church was started was not the question I answered or even the question that was asked. Try to follow along.
Actually, Jerry was speaking of all the members of Jesus' early church. You in context of that question discussed Andrew being baptized. As proof you discussed his being a disciple of John. At that time, Jesus' church did not exist.
I am following along quiet well, thank you.
Your right. Jerry did speak of Jesus and his desiples as if they were an early church. Good looking out brother.
I however answered the question by Invicta (post # 8). I could only answer that Andrew was the only disiple of John the Baptist who is also mentioned as a disiple of Jesus. I did not try to answer if there was a church in the time of Jesus, that would be my fault.
Again, I did not answer as to when the early church was started, not did I try to, but to only answer that Andrew was baptized by John the Baptist. I hope this clears us up and no bad feelings between us.
