I am confused at the interpretation of this scripture (Hebrews 10:25) by many churches. I don't quite understand how what Paul wrote is considered a commandment. I read this entire chapter as an encouragement to hold steadfast in your faith, and to encourage and assist other Christians to do so too, especially during adversity. What does history say was the practice in Paul's time? Didn't they used to gather together in each other's homes, or in other places, as friends would gather? Did they go to the Temple regularly, or did that stop with Christ's anger at the moneymaking and predatory commerce in the courtyard around the Temple? How can this be studied in Logos?

Just dive in and figure it out from the text and what resources you have. There's no secret to most of of this; it's just careful, methodical, (usually) hard work.

Hint: Not every required action has to be in the imperative in order to be obeyed. You can take it from here 👍

Also, note the increasingness-ity... one should meet even more often as 'the Day' approaches. So, if normally, maybe twice a year, as 'the Day' approaches, maybe also add the Thanksgiving pagent extravaganza.

If you own the Logos resource titled The New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge, that is where I suggest you begin your study. Then carefully study the cross references I assembled for Romans 15:7 based upon my many years of experience and careful study. Doing such a Bible study as this could and should revolutionize your Christian life and ministry permanently!

About Heb 10:25..... some questions...

1. Do Christians have a responsibility to encourage each other in their Christian life?

2. Do Christians have a responsibility to "teach and admonish" each other in singing?

3. Do Christians have a responsibility to partake of communion together?

CA:

Excerpt:

"The epistle’s recipients are unknown. They were likely second-generation believers (2:3) who had suffered for the gospel (10:32–35). Extensive knowledge of the OT is assumed. The traditional view of the recipients as persecuted Jewish believers tempted to apostatize and return to Judaism is likely.

The probable destination is Rome, which had a significant Jewish population (forty to sixty-thousand) in the first century. The gospel presumably came to Rome by converts from Pentecost (Acts 2:5–11). The recipients likely were part of a local house church, which was tempted to withdraw from a larger association of house churches (Heb. 10:25, 32–34). A Roman destination may be supported by distinctive terminology (hēgoumenoi in Heb. 13:7) and Clement of Rome’s appropriation of Hebrews around AD 95."

 Harris, D. M. (2020). Hebrews. In J. S. Duvall & J. D. Hays (Eds.), The Baker Illustrated Bible Background Commentary (pp. 1227–1228). Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Books.

Consider the following: Hebraic thought is living, and in flux, meaning that some thrusts can be adapted to new circumstances.

So as we see in the whole of God's Word, communal adoration is where it is at. But if for some dire circumstances we  are forced to do it in a smaller scale (eg at home) we should be flexible and knowledgeable enough to do it, that requires maturity.

But in the end the message is clear: something happens in large worship that is to be preferred.

These are theological questions and, as such, the Forum Guidelines that have been quoted to you before forbid anyone from answering them in this thread.

I find many times, that asking myself questions such as I posed above (for Heb 10.25) helps to get to the meat of the issue. They are simple "Yes - No" questions... I didn't pose them for discussion.

There are 3 questions that will help to understand many passages of Scripture...

1. Who is talking?

2. Whom are they talking to?

3. What are they talking about?

All the above question are given to try to help learn about Heb 10:25. In that context...
