THE LORD’S PRAYER

AM Okorie

Abstract


The Lord’s Prayer has been a major component of Christian worship since the time of the primitive church.  Matthew 6:9-13 and Luke 11:2-4 record two versions of this prayer in a Stiz im Leben Jesu, while Didache 8;2 advocates use of the Matthean version in private devotions.  All three of these works may be dated around the end of the first or beginning of the second century.
