This work presents the early interpretive history of the Lord's Prayer. It not only surveys what it meant to Jesus and the early Christians, but also seeks to address the question of why the understanding of the Lord's Prayer changes. Biblical texts invite - even urge - new interpretations. The meaning of the Lord's Prayer is to be found not just in its 'original sense,' but in the history of its meaning. This work traces the beginning chapters of a two-thousand-year story that we ourselves continue to shape.
