Tradition plays a key role in Catholic thinking. Why is this so? In this podcast episode, we briefly discuss the relationship between tradition and our knowledge of the Bible’s contents. I talk a little bit about how tradition played a key role in leading the church’s leaders to include certain books on the list of authoritative books to be read on liturgy. We note that most of the Gospels do not contain autobiographical information on the part of the author, explicitly indicating their connection to apostolic sources. The absence of such information is critical because, without it, another source is needed for confirming the apostolic origins of these statements about the life and ministry of Jesus. In other words, we need tradition in order to know which Gospels indeed emerged from apostolic origins. Join us this week as we talk about the place of tradition in our thinking as Catholic Christians.
