    Or temple.

    Hmm. But he said the church was the membership, not the building.

    Is it not more appropriate to call Jesus a traveling preacher?

    He did travel all over Israel and its neighbors spreading his message. A street preacher tend to stay in a preferred city and preach to the public there. Jesus was a bit more expansive in practice.

    True, as were the apostles. But the people are the church and not the building so he did have a church congregation to preach to. If you think of the OT I get the feeling that God never really wanted a permanant structure for his followers. Temple for many years was a well made tent. God did eventually have Solomon build the Temple but I get the feeling it's because it was what the people wanted and not necessarily God who wanted the Permanent structure so it doesn't surprise me it's the route the Son took also.
