Barb: You are talking about the writings of Luke who was not an eyewitness to Jesus.//

???

Barb, I specifically said JOHN 21:25.
'
Monk agreed with me and YOU JUMPED into our conversation correcting Monk and I.

Now you are going to change the Gospel I used?

I answered Cluny first. Anyone can answer, Cluny. You seem upset that you didn't convince me.

It's okay.

//There is nothing left for me to say that would be of any interest to you so I will leave you to carry on this discussion without my input.//

Thanks, we were carrying this discussion BEFORE your input.

PEACE

Nicole, I was talking about the 11 eyewitness apostles that Jesus chose and sent out to all nations. You are talking about the writings of Luke who was not an eyewitness to Jesus. There is nothing left for me to say that would be of any interest to you so I will leave you to carry on this discussion without my input.

Cluny: When Jesus sent His disciples out two by two (I don't remember if this were the 12 or 70), they did anoint the sick.
This is mentioned in the Gospels.//

Thanks, you are correct.

When Jesus sent the 12 out it states they anointed the sick.

Mark 6:13 They drove out many demons and anointed many sick people with oil and healed them.

What about water during baptism?
---Nicole_Lacey on 12/8/18


\\Anointing of the sick found in James. James 5:14\\

When Jesus sent His disciples out two by two (I don't remember if this were the 12 or 70), they did anoint the sick.

This is mentioned in the Gospels.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 12/8/18


Barb: From where do rituals, doctrines and practices not found in the teachings of Jesus originate?//

Many. The Apostles did many rituals not found in the Gospels.

Anointing of the sick found in James. James 5:14

Tell me where in the Gospels did Jesus told them to anoint people to get better, and only by elders as we the CC states today. Only Priests can anoint sick people.

Also where in the Gospel did Jesus said to use WATER to baptizes people?

But in Acts, Phillip used water to baptize the Ethiopian eunuch.

Jesus only spoke about the Words that must be used during baptism.

But since James and Phillip were Jesus' Disciples we can believe these actions were instructions given by Jesus. Luke 10:16
---Nicole_Lacey on 12/8/18




Nicole, what I am trying to convey is that God has left nothing out in regard to truth and salvation. John 17:5-8.

From where do rituals, doctrines and practices not found in the teachings of Jesus originate? They come from the traditions of men and Jesus warned us about this in Matthew 15. My understanding is that if we reject His words, we reject Him.

"This people honor me with their lips but their heart is far from me, teaching as doctrine the percepts of men." Matt 15:1-14.
---barb on 12/8/18


Barb, I think I understand what you are trying to convey.

What I am saying is that the Disciples did everything Jesus did and taught them.

So, practices (same word used in Matthew 7:21-26) done throughout the centuries were taught by Jesus.

People want to kick out Traditions the Church did since Jesus' Resurrection just because they are not in the Bible.

So we point to John 21:25.

Even John states everything Jesus did and excepted them to copy could not be written down.

It is easier for me to teach you how to change a car tire by you watching me instead of writing every step on paper.

In fact, that's how apprentice was done.
---Nicole_Lacey on 12/7/18


Nicole, Jesus said that it was the words that He had spoken that would judge those who reject them. "He who rejects me and does not receive my words has one who judges him, the word that I have spoken will judge him in the last day." John 12:46-50.

His signs, miracles and works were proof of who He was and were performed by Him through His Father. His teaching was His testimony to the Truth. John 18:37. My point is that everything we need to know about salvation has been given to us by God who spoke through His Son. Matt 7:21-27.

\\ We reject anything that contradicts what is written.
---Samuelbb7 on 12/4/18\\

Ok, Samuel, I'm going to ask a trick question.

On what basis do you accept the NT? A list of the canonical books didn't float down from heaven, did it?

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 12/4/18


True Monk. We reject anything that contradicts what is written.
---Samuelbb7 on 12/4/18




Barb: The verse in John 20:25 does not say that the teachings of Jesus were not recorded but that many things He did were not written:

Okay, but Jesus Himself gave His Actions more greater weight than His Words.

John 10:37-38:

If I am not doing the works of My Father, then do not believe Me. But if I am doing them, even though you do not believe Me, believe the works themselves, so that you may know and understand that the Father is in Me, and I am in the Father.

Still John 21:25 doesn't have all of His Works written down.

As you also said about Matthew 28.

Matthew 28 backs up the Disciples passing down Jesus' Teaching and Works by word and tradition through the Church
---Nicole_Lacey on 12/4/18


Cluny:

This is a loaded question, because I know that Catholics and Orthodox have their own specific ideas about what those undocumented teachings are. However, the bible does not tell us what those are, presumably because God didn't think it was that important for us to know, because it if WAS important, he would have told us.
---StrongAxe on 12/4/18


barb, what is the difference between "not recorded" and "not written down"?

And the verse specifically says the WORDS Jesus said, not only His actions.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 12/4/18


The verse in John 20:25 does not say that the teachings of Jesus were not recorded but that many things He did were not written down. "And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of His disciples that are not written in this book." John 20:29-31. Perfect harmony with John 20:25.

After His resurrection and before His ascension, Jesus sent His disciples out to All Nations to teach everything that He had taught them. Matt 28:18-20. Do you think the apostle John ignored Him and left important details out of his writings? That cannot be true because the book of Revelation was entrusted to John.
---barb on 12/4/18


Nicole Lacey said, "As John said, there wouldn't be enough books to hold everything Jesus taught them."

Amen!

There are all sorts of things in the traditions of the Church (not traditions of man) that are either not recorded in the Bible or are simply rejected outright by our Protestant brethren.
---Monk_Brendan on 12/3/18


Exactly questions.

The Traditions held in the Church not found in the Bible.

As John said, there wouldn't be enough books to hold everything Jesus taught them.

John 21:25
