    A refutation of the heretics, from the fact that, in the various Churches, a perpetual succession of bishops was kept up. 1. It is within the power of all, therefore, in every Church, who may wish to see the truth, to contemplate clearly the tradition of the apostles manifested throughout the whole world; and we are in a position to reckon up those who were by the apostles instituted bishops. James is called James the Greater because another younger apostle was named James. (He should not be confused with this James, or the James who is a relative of Jesus, or the James who was an elder of the Church in Jerusalem and heard Peter's defense of baptizing Gentiles.) James is the patron saint of hatmakers, rheumatoid sufferers, and laborers.

      BUT, Bishops in general are not the sole successor of a given Apostle. There are more bishops than there were apostles. As a group, the apostles made up a college. – AsFarAsIKnow – It is the one college which the bishops as a group are successors to. The unbroken line of ordination can be traced back to the Apostles. and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty; from there he will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

      Is there a specific Church teaching as to when the Apostles became Bishops and their hands consecrated? The hands of the Apostles were recognized as being consecrated by evidence of the signs and wonders that came through them (Acts ) Peter indicated that having been selected as one of the Twelve was what conferred the “office” of apostolic ministry. For the bishops and the presbyters are the priests with relation to the people; and the laity are the laity with relation to the clergy. And to be a Christian is in our own power; but to be an apostle, or a bishop, or in any other such office, is not in our own power, but at the disposal of God, who bestows the gifts. And thus much concerning.

One of the issues he concentrates on in particular is the church-dividing character of the question whether bishops are the successors of the apostles by divine institution, with the consequence that valid ministry depends on ordination by 5/5(1).

Acts tells us a great deal about the lifestyle of the first Christian community. As Luke describes it early on in the book, “they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers” ()–spiritual resources for the spiritual goal which God gave them by.
