Episode Info

Episode Info: Which principles should Catholics use when attempting to understand the meaning of the Bible? In this episode, we talk at length about the analogy of faith, a principle which states that individual statements of Scripture should be understood within the larger structure of Catholic beliefs, which are conveniently synthesized in the Nicean-Constantinopolitan creed. We discuss how this principle has characterized the way that famous Catholic bishops, doctors and saints of the church have understood the Bible’s meaning. For many of these thinkers within the Catholic heritage, the Church’s faith established a continual reference point for understanding the meaning of difficult statements in the Bible. At the heart of this conviction was the belief that the same God who led the authors of Scripture to write the text of the individual books of the Bible was the same God who led the church in defiance faith over the centuries. Join us this week as we discuss the analogy of faith as one of the Catholic approach is to interpreting Scripture. The Catholic Heritage is devoted to helping Catholic Christians better understand the history, teachings and culture of their Catholic faith so that they can better love and serve Christ, the Church and their neighbors.
