On the Journey with Matt and Ken, Ep. 58:
Christian Authority – The Historical Case
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.
In this episode, Matt and Ken dig into some of the early Christian sources that point to Rome as the “headquarters” of the Church, and how it came to be seen that way. As the site of the martyrdoms of Peter and Paul, the consensus of reliable early Christian sources shows us that Rome became the central seat of Christian leadership within the lifetimes of the apostles.
