significance for early Christians and their Jewish contemporaries.
Also, Mark Hamilton is currently writing a PhD dissertation at Harvard University called ‘The Body Royal: Kingship and Masculinity in Ancient Israel.’

It is important to deal with structure early in the organization’s development. Structural development can occur in proportion to other work the organization is doing, so that it does not crowd out that work.
And it can occur in parallel with, at the same time as, your organization’s growing accomplishments, so they take place in tandem, side by side.
This means that you should think about structure from the beginning of your organization’s life. As your group grows and changes, so should your thinking on the group’s structure.
ELEMENTS OF STRUCTURE
While the need for structure is clear, the best structure for a particular coalition is harder to determine.
The best structure for any organization will depend upon who its members are, what the setting is, and how far the organization has come in its development.
