Welcome back to the Catholic Hack,

In this episode I wanted to take on the New Testament Priesthood, the Priesthood of Jesus Christ, the Priesthood of the twelve Apostles. I was inspired by a Catholic Answers show, last week, on the Priesthood with Dr. Brant Pitre and Michael Barber ( They did a fantastic job and it got my scriptural juices flowing.

I also read an article from Tim Staples on this topic that did a great job detailing the use of the Greek words for elder and for Priest and how they were used in the New Testament. As Tim says in the article If it Walks like a duck and talks like a duck… must be a duck. The same is said for the Priesthood because it looks, acts, feels, and operates as Priesthood so it is a Priesthood.

Thanks again for your listener-ship and support of this Podcast. Please send me more feedback and leave me a review on iTunes.

God Bless

    1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.

    1 Peter 2:4 As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him— you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
