The Earliest Church Handbook: The Didache

In this new video post, I’m giving a quick introduction to what is likely the oldest church handbook in history, The Didache (aka the “Teaching” or “Instruction”). This short, ancient text gives us a fascinating window into the everyday practices of earliest Christianity.

You can read a translation of The Didache online here: https://www.newadvent.org/fathers/0714.htm

    Great content. And nice backdrop! I would have been interested to see some images of manuscripts. Thanks for sharing!
