Being Fruitful and Multiplying in Number and Fruitfulness

Being fruitful and multiplying - we normally connect this phrase with men and women getting married and having families. I would like to suggest that the Scriptures paint a broader picture than just having children ...

... when we are told that the Messianic Community multiplied in number, it is not referring to human reproduction, but to reproduction of belief in Yeshua. Similarly, Colossians 1:6 speaks of the Good News being fruitful and multiplying, and Colossians 1:10 speaks of "being fruitful in every good work and multiplying in the full knowledge of God."

What do you think? Read the Scriptures yourself, listed in the Mitzvah, and see if this isn't an exciting commandment!
