The Didache is a brief work—not longer than the Epistle to the Galatians; but its suggestiveness is great and varied. G.C. Allen presents an English translation with notes and illustrations which show its relation to the New Testament and the beliefs and practices of the early Christian church. Before the annotated translation he provides an introduction where he covers the Didache’s discovery, its importance, its age, and a short analysis of its contents.

“ND concerning baptism, baptize after this manner: Having first recited all these precepts baptize into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost in living water; 2 but if thou hast not living water, baptize into other water; and if thou canst not in cold water then baptize in warm. 3 But if thou hast neither, pour out water upon the head thrice, into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost.* 4 And before the baptism let the baptizer and the baptized fast, and any others that are able; but thou shalt order the baptized to fast one or two days beforehand.” (Page 5)

“ELECT therefore for yourselves‡ bishops and deacons worthy of the Lord men that are meek, and not lovers of money, and true and approved. For they themselves also minister unto you the ministry of prophets and teachers, 2 therefore disregard them not; for it is they that are the honoured ones among you with the prophets and teachers.” (Page 9)

“AND on the Lord’s day of the Lord assemble yourselves together and break bread;* and give thanks after having confessed also your transgressions, that* your sacrifice may be pure. 2 And let not any man that is at variance with his fellow come together with you until they be reconciled, that your sacrifice be not polluted. 3 For this† is that which was spoken of by the Lord: In every place and time offer unto me a pure sacrifice,* for I am a great King, saith the Lord; and My Name is wonderful among the Gentiles.” (Page 9)
