Chapter Summary

This chapter renders the full text of the Doctrina as it was published in a separate appendix to the Didache edition of W. Rordorf and A. Tuilier. It briefly outlines the specific features of this document in comparison to the Two Ways version of the Didache. The Doctrina Apostolorum is less reliable as far as the precise wording is concerned. The primary purpose of the chapter is to present a hypothetical reconstruction of the original Greek text of the composition behind the Doctrina, the Didache and Barnabas. Apart from the Christian additions in Did 1 :3b-2: 1, Did 6:2-3, and some other divergences, the reconstructed text, displayed in the chapter is very similar to the extant version in the Didache. Finally, the chapter discusses some points of the Greek reconstruction, which have not or only partly been dealt with in modem editions of the Didache.
