I don't want to start a new thread, so I decided to ask it here.
I'm interested in the origin of The Assyrian Church of East, but from their perspective.
I found this information: It is an Apostolic church, established by the apostles St Thomas, St Thaddeus, and St Bartholomew. St Peter, the chief of the apostles added his blessing to the Church of the East at the time of his visit to the see at Babylon, in the earliest days of the church: "... The chosen church which is at Babylon, and Mark, my son, salute you ... greet one another with a holy kiss ..." ( I Peter 5:13-14).http://www.oikoumene.org/member-churches/regions/north-america/united-states-of-america/holy-apostolic-catholic-assyrian-church-of-the-east.html
Do Assrians believe that Peter was literally in Babilon, and it didn't mean he was actualy in Rome?
I have read this before, mostly from members of the Assyrian Church (as well as some Protestant writers who are enamored with it), but as far as I know, they are the only ones who have ever claimed as much.
