We have a record of an explanation of Christian worship delivered to converts to Christianity that were about to be baptized, presented by a man named Cyril who was either the bishop or a presbyter of the Church of Jerusalem at the time. Think about it: this is a description of the details of the Christian service of worship recorded before the list of books comprising the New Testament was even finalized (this only took place in 367)…
