The Didache

Quasten begins with the Apostles' Creed, the roots of which he traces to apostolic times, though of course (as he notes) in its present form it dates from the sixth century at the earliest.

But we shall skip right to the Didache, which dates from some time between AD 100 and 150. It's short enough to be worth reading in its entirety.

Please note that the chapter divisions and titles are not part of the document, and are of recent date. The title is "The Lord's Instruction to the Gentiles through the Twelve Apostles" (Didache being Greek for "instruction").

Later I will post some of Quasten's notes on the Didache. But for now, let's just read it.
