At the culmination of his presentation in the Apostolic Decree, the author of Acts provides rules for the organization of the community, whose historical and theological classification is an enigma. In this volume, authors from various disciplines collaborate to solve this enigma. The early Christian communities, for whom the Apostolic Decree was intended, were part of a large number of ancient associations, as were the Jewish synagogues. Thus linking the two provides new insights and knowledge. In addition to primarily exegetical articles and studies of the reception history of the Decree, the book also contains ancient historical insights into associations in antiquity and also attempts to give a clearer picture of the Apostolic Decree against this backdrop.
