A caller named Mike asks, "Who is the 'beloved' disciple mentioned in the Gospels?" Father Dave points out that the mention of the beloved disciple only occurs in the Gospel of John, and the phrase refers to the Apostle John. It's possible that this phrase is used as a statement of humility, in not wanting to name himself. Original Air 4-10-18

A listener named Mike asks about records of apostolic succession and the laying on of hands by the bishops. Father Dave explains that there are websites that keep track of ordinations tracing back to the 1500s; however, we do not have much information before that. Father Dave points out that the Holy Spirit has been keeping apostolic succession together all these years, and in the Acts of the Apostles when the Sanhedrin wanted to kill Peter and the apostles, Gamaliel proclaims that if Christianity was man-made it would not last, but if it is from God no one will be able to destroy it.
