Jesus modeled involvement in corporate worship through His actions. Luke 4:16 tells us Jesus "went into the synagogue, as was his custom." It was His "custom" - His regular practice - to participate in hearing and teaching the Word in an active assembly of learning God-seekers. The early Christian church emerged directly from that setting of studious Scriptural community.
Nice! As I recall, he considered your body the temple. He had his own ideas, but was also a Rabbi, so he did try to incorporate his ideas into the traditional customs of the time. Rabbis were required to be married by the way.

Paul helped establish many Christian churches, and they were around when Hebrews was written. Before the Christian churches, there were the Jewish temples
