I was having a conversation with a friend and we were looking at verses that described tradition and in many cases (2 Thess. 3:6 for one), his Bible replaced the word ‘tradition’ with ‘teaching’.
Would anyone know what the word means in its original language?

I looked it up. The word comes from the Greek “paradosis” (παράδοσις) and here is Strong’s definition:
[quote:3rq63kws]transmission, that is, (concretely) a precept; specifically the Jewish traditionary law: – ordinance, tradition.[/quote:3rq63kws]
why is it so hard for people to accept the fact that God uses Holy Tradition as well as Holy Scripture. I don’t know how people expect to have a Bible without it. The whole New Testament is a recording of that same Holy Tradition.
I think it may be an ignorance as to what Catholics mean when they use the word [i:2jz7ctsm]Tradition[/i:2jz7ctsm]. I’m sure you know (with your background in a different church) that other people have this perception that it’s those pesky “traditions of men” the Bible speaks against.
However, that is not the case. ” title=”Wink” />
