Around 800 BCE, YHWH sent a warning via the prophet Hosea to the people of the northern tribes of Israel, commonly referred to as Ephraim. He said to them:
Hosea 4:6 6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected knowledge, I reject you from being a priest to me. And since you have forgotten the law of your G-D, I also will forget your children.
The Jewish people pray daily for justice to be restored. They know that one of the major factors causing such injustice in the land is a lack of Torah knowledge. If you’re going to have godly justice, you have to have a working knowledge of God’s laws.
The Synagogue system was designed to provide and instill into the minds of the Jewish people a good working knowledge of His Torah. When we look on how the Synagogue operates, especially the roles of those who participate in it, and how it fit into the Jewish lifestyle, we can better understand How Yeshua walked in those days.
Without the Temple, the Synagogue became the place to praise Abba Elohim
Pray, read the Torah, the Psalms, and the Prophets, and to study His instructions, the Torah. In fact, at most Synagogues were an adjoining structure called the “beit midrash” or “house of study”.
