The Apostolic Fathers

Kyle Padden and Paul Maxwell join Jonathan Brack and Charles Williams to discuss the importance and value of reading the Apostolic Fathers. Particular attention is given to the letters of Ignatius of Antioch, the way he dealt with the question of the nature of the church’s authority, and the impact of martyrdom as it relates to the apostolic teaching.

Early Heresies: Adoptionism

In the sixth episode of Faith of our Fathers, Jonathan Brack and Charles Williams discuss two of the earliest heresies in church history: Ebionism and Adoptionism. The Ebionites regarded Jesus as Messiah, but rejected his divinity while insisting on following Jewish laws. Adoptionism was an early heresy that Jesus was adopted as the Son of God at some point during his life—often his baptism, resurrection, or ascension.

The Early Church and Judaism

In the third episode of Faith of our Fathers, Jonathan Brack and Charles Williams explore the growing tensions and eventual separation between Judaism and Christianity in the first century—explaining how Christianity came to be seen no longer as simply another sect of Judaism, and how this separation led Christians to fall into the crosshairs of the Roman Empire.
