Abstract:

"This brief narrative attempts to depict what it was like to attend an early Christian gathering in the middle of the first century. Rome was chosen as the location because we know more about details of ordinary life there at that time than anywhere else. Aquila and Priscilla were selected as hosts of the church because their long-term connection with Paul meant that the gathering in their home would most probably follow the line his letters suggest. The material utilized in this study came from biblical and other literary sources, both Roman and Greek, and from archaeological and inscriptional evidence."--The Preface.
