Chapter Summary

This section of the book The Didache: Its Jewish Sources and its Place in Early Judaism and Christianity presents a list of reference books and articles. The Didache, is a first-century Christian manual probably composed in Syria-Palestine, and a goldmine of information on the nascent Christian church and early Judaism. The Didache is characterized as a handbook of church morals, ritual and discipline, because it offers rules for ecclesiastical praxis. To a certain extent, these rules obviously reflect local reality. The manual offers a glimpse of the earliest details with regard to the actual practice of the catechumenate, baptism, and the Eucharist in a specific Christian community and provides us with data about the functioning of leadership in that primitive community.

Keywords: church; Didache; early Christianity; early Judaism
