Living According to the Lord's Day: The Formative Role of Worship in Early Christianity from Regent Audio on Vimeo.

The worship practices of the earliest Christians reflect their convictions about Jesus and his relationship to God. These practices, which took a variety of forms, shaped the earliest Christian communities. Ignatius, the second century bishop of Antioch, was not alone in his call for Christians to align their lives with the grain of their worship, or as he put it, to “live according to the Lord’s day.” In this lecture, encounter various worship practices of early Christians and explore how they moulded faithful Jesus followers. Consider implications for Christian worship today.
