Showing and Telling

Christianity and the Rhetoric of Empire: The Development of Christian Discourse (Sather Classical Lectures),
Averil Cameron, University of California Press, 1991, page 79

Cameron notes that it was in Greek cities that Christian communities first became established.

The quality of proclamation is best seen in the case of Christian preaching, the hidden iceberg of Christian discourse; Christians not only sought to teach but, through regular repetition and by continually drawing on and reinterpreting an increasingly familiar body of texts, also constantly reaffirmed the essence of the faith and the constituents of membership of the Christian community.
