THE APOSTOLIC COUNCIL OF JERUSALEM: THE DECISIVE PARADIGM FOR THE CHURCH'S SYNODICAL MODE OF EXISTENCE: A TIMELY REMINDER FOR TODAY

Introductory Remarks
In the Eastern Orthodox tradition, the bishop of each local Church[1] is the authoritative organ charged with the responsibility to maintain the Church's identity and continuity with that of the apostolic Church. Accordingly, the bishop is not only the authorized teacher but also the guarantor and witness to the apostolic faith held by all within the worshipping community. Indeed, by virtue of that special gift of the Holy Spirit – specifically known as the charisma veritatis [the gift of truth][2] – bestowed upon him at his ordination, the bishop acts as the discernible link to the authentic faith of the apostles thereby safeguarding the continuity of the entire Church's life with that of the apostolic Ekklesia.
