MARCH 2019

We are pleased to announce another addition to our Editorial Board … Dr. Wojciech Rybka. His 2017 dissertation at the University of Edinburgh analyzed the Early Church leaders’ interpretations. His bio is now up on our Editorial Board page. The first volume of The Acts 15 Chronicle book series is now being assembled. This will help leaders from a variety of backgrounds see important and current articles capturing some of the key issues. The Society’s website has now attracted 1,260 visitors from over 50 countries without any effort to announce the website. An intentional campaign to broadcast the site and book series will begin upon completion of the Editorial Board. We are also in discussions with a professional on how to promote the Society.

This month’s feature is a blog post, the second in a series on ritual law, by our President, Paul Blake.

Hidden Treasures

There are many differences (in the historic councils), but most of them only put the Jerusalem Council in a favorable light vis-à-vis the later councils. Alone among the great councils of the first eight centuries, the Jerusalem Council was not summoned or influenced by a Roman Emperor. Not surprisingly then, the Jerusalem Council was notably lacking in the murder or exile of some of the disputants. And alone among the great councils, most of which look like Eastern synods, the Jerusalem Council could claim, from a proportional point of view, to be truly reflective of the greater part of Christian believers at the time it was held.
Monsignor John P. Meier, 1996
