Update On the Teachings of the Twelve Apostles Book

I’ve finished rendering the book on the teachings of the twelve apostles into modern English and have written around 70% of my commentary.
 
This book contains Didache and Didascalia English translations, because both of these early Christian texts complement each other and shed light on each other.
 
I’ve learnt a lot from these texts, therefore I want to make them more accessible to others by rendering them into modern English and adding my commentary with some explanations of the text (as some of the points may be misunderstood) and my take on certain subjects discussed.
 
These two texts mainly deal with Christian behaviour, faith and the Church. They provide a stark contrast between the early Christian faith and what it has turned into now.
 
I hope this book will benefit many. Its price won’t be fixed but will be made available on donation, and its length will be 200+ pages.

Some Possible Reasons Why the Holy Spirit Doesn’t Descend on Some

In this video I list some reasons why the Holy Spirit doesn’t descend on some based on my experiences as well as the Bible.

During this time an event occurred which showed the character of John and provided a lesson to all the Christians.

Eusebius tells this story that was recorded by Clement of Alexandria in his narrative titled “What Rich Man is Saved?”: Read more…

160 AD Letter Explains How Jesus Fulfilled the Law and the Mystery of Passover

Whilst I was reading original Council of Nicaea documents (which are extremely interesting) I got a little bit sidetracked with the Easter issue.

It was difficult for me to understand how early church fathers would accept Constantine’s suggestion of no longer celebrating Easter on the Jewish Passover (like Christians did up to that council) but to change that to a Sunday celebration.

Constantine reasoned that since Jews were the enemies of Christ, Christians shouldn’t celebrate Passover on the same date as them. That doesn’t make much sense because Jesus died on the Passover, and He became our Passover. Read more…
