It is again largely unchanged since i964 and concerns apocalyptic in the New Testament (especially the Synoptic apocalypse and Revelation), Didache
16, and the Shepherd of Hermas (which is nevertheless judged not to be an apocalypse!).
"As the grains of wheat, once scattered on the hill were gathered into one to become our bread, so may all your people from all the ends of earth be gathered into one in you" (With One Voice 705; Didache
The point of departure is Adolf von Harnack's 1884 study of the Didache
, especially 11-15, which stresses wandering prophets and apostles.
There are synopses of Didache

Thomas O'Loughlin author of the book, "The Didache
: A Window on the Earliest Christians," writes, "It is one of the few elements in Christians' worship today where one can get widespread agreement (more or less) about what to do or say: at the suggestion that a group recite the Lord's Prayer, most will both agree to the suggestion and be able to say it." (Page 76).
Then he surveys early perspectives in such works at the Didache
