    The one where we evaluate Witherow's evaluation of the three forms of church government. Who knew we'd be more generous than him?

    20. You're Not Alone (Witherow's 3rd Principle)

    Welcome to RE Joshua Torrey and apologies that we subjected him to a new game before discussing the third principle of the apostolic church: in each church there ought to be a plurality of elders.

Sloth Pelican

Fascinating show… If we use Dr. Frame’s triperspectivalism, one could says that Baptists consider the Jerusalem Council in Acts 15 to be “situational” and Presbyterians (rightly) consider it to be “normative.”

Can’t wait

This is going to be the most drawn out and intensive podcast that I’ll ever listen to. Like Presbytery on the go. I’m thrilled

Excited!

I am looking forward to having a way of getting familiar with the BCO on audio. After hearing a reference to Vos Group, I'm interested to see if these are some old school presbyterians.
