I arrived home from sparkhouse yesterday to find a happy package on my doorstep. The DVD I shot with Paraclete Press earlier in the year had arrived: The Faith and Practice of the Earliest Christians: a DVD Study on the Didache with Tony Jones. It turned out great, IMHO. It’s a six-session video curriculum aimed at adult learning communities and Sunday schools, but I imagine it will also be used by high school and college ministries.
It’s a companion to my book, The Teaching of the Twelve: Believing and Practicing the Primitive Christianity of the Ancient Didache Community (a book that, I must say, has been very well received by those who have read it).The DVD is now on sale at Paraclete’s website. And you can get a taste in the video below.
If you lead small groups and the like, I encourage you to consider using this book and video in tandem. I think it will provoke a lot of great discussion about the nature of the Christian faith and how our faith was practiced in the very earliest church.
