The age of apostolic deposit[edit]

As far as I can tell, this term or "Apostolic Era" is rarely used in the sense of Catholic and Orthodox apologetics, to refer to the entire period between Christ's comings (as this article uses it). It is used by Catholics as the Protestants also use it, to describe the period of time during which the Apostolic deposit was left once for all, to the Church.

The Catholic apologetic is not that we live now in the age of the apostles, the apostolic era, but that there is a line of succession, of trusteeship, that extends back from the present continuously all the way to the Apostolic age - and that therefore their church has preserved by the Holy Spirit the fullness of Apostolic authority. That is substantially different from what this article says, and therefore I've marked it with a disputed tag. — Mark (Mkmcconn) ** 01:51, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned references in Apostolic Age[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Apostolic Age's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 19:41, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

In the section "The first gentile convert," I'd want the sentence "Some scholars assert that the Ethiopian eunuch..." to point to *which* scholars assert that. Maybe a [who?] tag there. But I don't know how to put that in, or whether it'd be appropriate in the first place, just starting here. :) If note #16 refers to such a source, that should be made clearer.
