apostolic succession.
« on: October 06, 2008, 06:26:29 PM »
Hello all, I'm looking for Scriptural referances for Apostolic Succession. I have read Matthew 16:18; 2Timothy 2:2, and Acts 20:17,18 were also given in one website, but is there any more. I do not reject the doctrine, I am just curious about if there are more.
Blessings to all.
Sedan.

Fwiw, there's also this passage in Titus:

"For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting, and ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed thee" - Tit. 1:5
"as [you've] informed us that respect chills love, it is natural to conclude that all your pretty flights arise from your pampered sensibility; and that, vain of this fancied preeminence of organs, you foster every emotion till the fumes, mounting to your brain, dispel the sober suggestions of reason. It is not in this view surprising that when you should argue you become impassioned, and that reflection inflames your imagination instead of enlightening your understanding." - Mary Wollstonecraft
