Please refer to The Didache.

and the generally good correlation between the apostles creed and the didache with apostolic doctrine posted by Fortigurn here.
Refer also to Evangelions In defense of the didache.
I have also seen a good comparison of chapters 11-13 with scripture although I haven't found it posted here.
There is a marked correlation between a number of sections and the sermon on the mount as recorded by Matthew:
|Didache Reference||Biblical Reference|
|1.1||Matt 7:13-14 same message|
|1.2b||Matt 7:12 same message|
|8:2||Matt 6:5; 9-13 quoted directly 'as the Lord hath commanded in his gospel'|
|14:2||Matt 5:22-24 by allusion|
|And that also in Matthew:|
|1.2a||Matt 22:37-40 same message|
|7:1||Matt 28:19 referred to as 'these precepts'|
|It therefore seems likely that|
|15:4||Matt 6:1-7 is being alluded to|
|14:3||Mal 1:14 quoted directly as 'being spoken of the Lord'|
The document as a whole displays an encouraging similarity with Christadelphian beliefs and practices. It is a document which places great emphasis on practical issues of living, which although agreed with by example, are not spoken of that often from the platform (in my experience). This is probably an over reaction to the 'I could have heard that anywhere' attitude, but is a pity none the less.
I now have a few questions.
