Sleeping Through the Sermon : And Other Discourses (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Sleeping Through the Sermon: And Other Discourses We read further that Paul interrupted himself in the sermon, went down and fell on the young man and, embracing him, said, Trouble not yourselves, for his life is in him. When he therefore was come up again and had broken bread and eaten and talked a long while, even till break of day, soon he departed. And they brought the young man alive and were not a little comforted. SO far as I know this is the beginning Of holding preaching services on the first day of the week, called in Christian lands the Lord's Day. It is interesting, also, in passing, that this first observance of the Lord's Day as a time for preaching the gospel happened in ancient Troas, a city somewhat in eclipse even in Paul's time, and now practically deserted, but which was once the site of a marvel ous and beautiful city, the scene Of the famous Homeric Trojan wars.
