So true,..And I really think I'm.right about MARY and the brethren trying to take,Jesus,home .

She,knew who HE,WAS,..But she,was a woman ..And I've no doubt the others,were worked up ..

As a,mother shed,prefer Him safe,...as,HIS,miter she knew,what He had to do...Well at least part of it ...

If she'd known in advance of the,Crucifixion..it would have,broken her heart way before it was time ....

We were not there,..But we know,she,loved Him.

That's what I was saying.
So really the question is: Did Jesus Christ set up His Church with Peter as the earthly head. And if so, would his successor in turn be the head? It appears so if you read some of the early writings by the Bishop of Rome, as well as St. Jerome and Augustine.
These are things being discussed by both of our Churches today. I think the schism will end in my lifetime. The whole split was stupid anyway. It had more to do with culture and language than sound doctrine.
In my opinion the issue of primacy is too conflicting and confusing for the east and the west to ever agree on a definition that works in practice . The two churches has been talking for over 50 years.....

One of the earliest Christian texts extant is a genuine letter from Paul to the Corinthians. At 1 Corinthians 15:3-5 he writes:
<quoted text>
This is a kerygma, a programmatic statement of faith. While Paul's letter is genuine -- his effort from around 50 AD -- the words in the above passage are not his. They represent a well-worn statement of faith, something he "received" and merely is repeating.
It is a statement as old -- or nearly so -- as Christianity itself.
Notice this kerygma is devoid of any reference to a virgin birth. A virgin birth was not necessary to the faith of the earliest Christians. Indeed, it was not known to them.
Fast forward to Mark, written around 70 AD. In Mark, a polemic against the Jerusalem Assembly, Jesus' family is antagonistic to him. In Mark 3, for example, the following passage is found:
<quoted text>
Odd that, given the annunciation found in Luke 1:
<quoted text>
So Mary, having been told by an angel of the special mission of her son in Luke 1, thinks her son is nuts when he engages in that mission in Mark 3. And early Christians exclude any reference to a virgin birth in one of their earliest statements of faith found in the first letter of Paul to the Corinthians.
Why?
Because, as Raymond Brown notes, the infancy narratives represent a late layer of tradition incorporated in the gospels -- an afterthought that in many respects was inconsistent with the earlier tradition recorded in Mark. The annunciation is part of that later tradition and something not known to the earliest Christians or to the author of Mark, a gospel entirely silent about Jesus' birth -- let alone any miracle birth.

You should read the bible instead of a Bishop of Rome's writings, who isn't infallible like God, that's another reason why the Catholic Church is nothing more than a false church spewing false doctrine.

The Pope is a successor to Peter in a historical sense. He holds a See that's has a special historical relationship with Peter. Ancient Popes if Rome recognized this and spoke of the "Chair of Saint Peter" as a Chair which existed in three places. Rome. Antioch. Alexandra. You will find this in St.Gregory The Great's writings. All Bishops fulfill the Petrine ministry of presiding at the Eucharistic Assembly.
maybe the 'chair' was his 'inspired' writings?

I wonder if they had any of the other NT Inspired writings?
,
Did they profess Jesus as LORD, maybe is the question.

Universal means Catholic. They were Catholics.
you said:
"those who believed what Peter said were Baptized"
How about you study what those people wrote? Then you wouldn't need to go on a Bible verse scavenger hunt.

How can that be when the Catholic Church didn't come into existence until around 300 AD. I do read what all of the people who wrote the bible. You noticed that I was right that you couldn't find anything in the bible about the Catholic Church because it is man made, not from the bible. Explain to me how they can be the church of the bible when the church of the bible was established in 33AD and the Catholic Church didn't come into existence until in the 300 AD, so explain how that can be.

No Clay according to Scripture Jesus did Not set Peter as head of his church.

I don't understand how we can judge Mary at all outside what the Bible says "that she pondered these things in her heart'.

The Mary that anointed Jesus' body for sacrifice is what we should tell about.
