Format: Hardcover
While this volume offers the combined efforts of the late David Flusser of Hebrew University and Huub van de Sandt of Tilburg University, the bulk of the work is actually that of Van de Sandt with Flusser responsible for the first draft of the section on the Greek text of the Didache found in Codex H (see 16-24) and the outline of chapters 4, 5, and 8 (of the book's nine chapters). Thus, the work is less a collaboration between colleagues and more the efforts of a diligent researcher and devoted student to frame and reshape the work of a specialist in late Judaism and early Christian traditions.
The book is well written, carefully argued, and beautifully published. Van de Sandt provides an impressive assimilation of Flusser's flowing literary style and insights on rabbinic literature into his own findings concerning the evolution of the Didache. The central premise focuses on the Jewish background of the so-called "two ways" tradition which lies behind the opening chapters of the Didache and of the ecclesiastical and liturgical materials of the subsequent chapters. Helpful guideposts appear throughout, primarily in the form of summaries at the beginning of chapters and before primary text divisions. There is a heavy dependence upon the traditional approaches of source, form, and redaction criticism combined with a particular concern for late Jewish texts and traditions.
Our authors argue that the Didache derives from a Jewish two ways tradition that was altered to include non-Jews (chs. 1-7), supplemented with materials of a traditional, liturgical design (ch. 8-10, 14-15; cf. 1 Tim. 2.1-3.13) to which concerns about traveling prophets were added (ch. 11-13), and was completed with an apocalypse (ch. 16) and evangelical section (1.3b-2.1).
