Ep. #140 - A Biblical Case for the Papacy w/ Suan Sonna

Classical Theism Podcast

What is the nature of the Church Christ founded? What are some biblical arguments for the papacy? How do both Jewish and non-Catholic sources support a Catholic interpretation of the first-century evidence? Suan Sonna joins us to defend the Papacy as an essential element of the Church Christ founded. The Classical Theism Podcast aims to defend Catholic Christian ideas in conversation. With the help of various guests, I defend three pillars of the Catholic Christian worldview: (1) the God of classical theism exists, (2) Jesus is our Messiah and Lord, and (3) He founded the Catholic Church. We place a strong emphasis on the first pillar, defending classical theism, drawing upon the work of Thomistic philosopher Dr. Edward Feser and many others.

BONUS: The Biblical Case for the Papacy with Suan Sonna

The Pat Flynn Show

In this massive 3 hour bonus theology episode, Suan Sonna argues that it can be shown from the scriptures that the Roman Catholic doctrine of the papacy is true - Christ established a supreme, infallible, and successional Petrine ministry. Sonna builds his massive case on sources from primarily Protestant and Orthodox scholars, demonstrating that the tide of New Testament scholarship is gradually affirming certain traditional Roman Catholic interpretations of the scriptures. He first defends the Davidic and apostolic constitution of Christ's Church, raises four arguments for the existence and supremacy of a Petrine ministry, five reasons from scripture and its Jewish roots to accept magisterial (and papal) infallibility, and explains why Rome matters according to Jewish messianic prophecies. Sonna concludes that Roman Catholicism is true, because it is the only conception of Christianity that truly completes what Judaism started.
