As part of my new book, The Teaching of the Twelve: Believing & Practicing the Primitive Christianity of the Ancient Didache Community, the editor, Jon Sweeney, and I wrote a new translation of the Didache. If you don’t know what the Didache is, um, well, buy the book! In short, it’s a little handbook of Christian life from a very early Christian community — I date it before the gospels.
We’re going to make our translation available for free, via a Creative Commons License, next week. Until then, I offer you my reading of our translation (17 minutes, mp3 file).
