098: Is the Papacy True? (w/ Joe Heschmeyer, Dr. Gavin Ortlund, and Austin Suggs) February 24, 2021

In our second  crossover episode, I’m joined by Austin Suggs from Gospel Simplicity as we host an incredible conversation with Joe Heschmeyer and Dr. Gavin Ortlund on the papacy: The Pope.

Did Christ intend to establish a Church with the Pope at its head? What do we find in the Early Church Fathers? Did the first Christians believe in a Pope? Is  it clear from the Bible? Tradition?

These questions, and many more, are tackled in this sprawling and deeply engaging conversation between two incredibly cordial, articulate, and intelligent Christian thinkers. Austin and I were absolutely blessed to be able to host this conversation.

You can watch this interview on Austin’s wildly popular YouTube channel Gospel Simplicity.
