Summary

Fenton John Anthony Hort and his friend B. E. Westcott compiled the texts used for almost every modern translation of the Bible. Hort was perhaps the greatest New Testament scholar of his time. In 1888 and 1889, he gave a series of lectures on early Christianity. Throughout, Hort uses the Greek word “ecclesia” in order to avoid contemporary cultural associations with the word “church.” His lectures explore what the ecclesia meant to its first members. To this day, the scholar’s insights have helped people understand more about life in the early church.
