On the Journey with Matt and Ken, Ep. 50:
Christian Authority – Old Testament Magisterium

May 20, 2021 No Comments

Matt Swaim and Ken Hensley continue to discuss how they went from Evangelical Christian understandings of authority to embracing what the Catholic faith teaches about the relationship between Sacred Scripture, Sacred Tradition, and the Magisterium.

To better understand the Catholic take on authority, Matt and Ken unpack what the Catholic Church means by the word “magisterium,” and look at the way authority functioned through law, tradition and teaching authority with God’s covenant people in the Old Testament.

And while those who wielded that divine authority in the Old Testament were sometimes holy, and sometimes far from it, God never decides to abandon His chosen people due to their sinfulness and start from scratch with a new people.
