On the Journey with Matt and Ken, Ep. 54:
Christian Authority – The Prominence of Peter
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.
What does the Bible tell us about Peter’s role among the apostles, not only during the time of Jesus’ public ministry, but after His ascension? Even setting aside the question of the development of the papacy in the early Church, it’s clear from Scripture that Peter is meant to have a unique position among the apostles, having been set apart by Jesus Himself.
