Abstract

ABSTRACT  


This article interprets a text of The Apostolic Tradition, a 3rd century Church Order containing rules for ordination, communion, cate­chism and baptism, as well as daily prayers. Studies of this ancient text were still very few in Indonesia, and mostly concerned with the part of the communion. In this article, the author will examine daily prayer, speci­fically the text of Apostolic Tradition 41:1-4 on the dawn prayer. The passage instructed that the congregation must gather every morning to listen to the teachings and perform communal prayer. This research star­ted from fact that there were few daily prayer celebrations in Indonesian churches, especially communal morning prayer. This study employed qualitative study design through literature studies and hermeneutics. The author argues that the communal dawn prayer in the Apostolic Tradition is relevant to be developed in Indonesian context.

ABSTRAK


Artikel ini akan mengulas tentang The Apostolic Tradition atau Tradisi Apostolik, sebuah Tata Gereja Kuno abad ketiga yang berisi aturan tentang penahbisan, perjamuan, katekisasi dan baptisan, serta ibadah harian. Studi tentang teks kuno ini masih sangat minim di Indonesia, dan kajian-kajian seputar Tradisi Apostolik lebih banyak mem­bahas tentang perjamuan. Dalam artikel ini, penulis akan membahas tentang ibadah harian, secara khusus teks Tradisi Apostolik 41:1-4 tentang doa fajar. Di dalam teks tersebut diinstruksikan agar umat setiap subuh bersekutu untuk mendengarkan pengajaran dan melaksanakan doa berje­ma­ah. Studi ini be­rang­kat dari fenomena minimnya ibadah harian di Indonesia, apalagi doa pagi berjamaah. Metode penulisan artikel ini menggunakan kaidah kuali­tataif, melalui studi literatur dan hermeneutika. Penulis berargumen bahwa keberjamaahan doa fajar dalam Tradisi Apos­tolik relevan untuk dikem­bangkan dalam ibadah harian di Indonesia.
