¿Pretendía Jesús iniciar una iglesia?

P: ¿Dónde surge el concepto de una “iglesia” entre Jesús y los apóstoles? No recuerdo escuchar acerca de “Iglesias” en la historia judía y me pregunto si Jesús pretendía iniciar una nueva iglesia o si su primera intención era reformar la fe judía.

Did Jesus intend to start a church?

Q: Where does the concept of a “church” arise among Jesus and the apostles? I don’t remember hearing about “churches” in Jewish history and I’m wondering if Jesus intended to start a new church or if his primary intention was to reform the Jewish faith.
