from re-Ver(sing) Verses

Acts 6:2 - So the Twelve gathered all the disciples together and said, ‘It would not be right for us to neglect the ministry of the word of God in order to wait on tables.

So the Twelve gathered all the disciples together and said, ‘It would not be right for us to neglect the ministry of the word of God in order to wait on tables. Acts 6:2 | NIV | Other Versions | Context

Brief

Acts 6:2 is usually regarded as the verse that explains where the need for deacons arose – to wait on tables (an act of service), in order to free the 12 disciples to go out and focus on preaching and spreading the gospel. If you look around the whole world today, the strictest requirements for waiting on tables must come from the Bible. It was not long after Jesus left them, and not long after the Pentecost. What we are looking at, is the First Church, and how it set the framework for many different churches in the future. Sure, not all churches have deacons, and not all churches function in a similar way, but what is sure is that there are different roles in a Church, and God uses different people to come together and serve in various capacities. In today’s study, we will break down this verse in order to understand the context and the need that led to the delegation of one of the Twelve’s responsibilities to the Seven.
