  • Divine Revelation = Jesus Christ (the Way, the Truth and the Life). Fullness of God’s revelation. All the Jesus said, taught and did has been handed down to us in an unbroken line by the apostles, handed down , guarded, and taught by the Bishops, successors to the apostles. (apostolic succession). The shepherds of the Church, the bishops. The deposit of faith is like a treasure which has been entrusted to the Church form which she draws her life and teachings.
  • Without fixed forms, the contents of the faith would dissipate.

  • The profession is in 3 parts cos - about our Trinitarian God Triune God – 3 persons-One God.Blessed Trinty.

  • A creed is a summary or statement of what one believes. The word …. I believe, I accept or hold true something on the word of another. The AC is a collection of all the truths the Apostles believed. It’s so called because it has come down (handed down to us as part of the deposit of faith) to us from the time of the apostles. The apostles were the 12 men that Jesus chose to be his first bishops- Peter being the first. They lived with him, followed him and learnt from him during his public ministry. These apostles taught and preached, following Jesus command “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; …(Matthew 28:19)..(as what Martin spoke about last week). What so important about the Creed, you may ask? When we recite the Creed, we make an act of faith. I believe in the God I cannot see, in the Trinity which is beyond my understanding and I put our trust in God’s word. This is what the C is about. The way your sessions designed – threads the entire Creed. That’s how important. Naturally a big part is devoted to JC- He the man. In the ancient days the Creed was used as a summary of Christian doctrines for baptismal candidates in the Roman churches. It is still used in the Rite of Baptism. During your baptism, each of you will be asked to profess your faith in the form of questions..Sunday Mass – Nicene Mass-longer version

    2. 2. The Apostles' Creed
    3. 3. The Apostles’ Creed <ul><li>After Jesus ascended into heaven, the deposit of faith was left in the hands of the apostles to be handed on to other believers. </li></ul><ul><li>In the Church’s beginning, the apostles would summarize the saving events of Jesus’ life, often in short, skeletal sermon summaries of the gospel that came to be known as the &quot; rule of faith ”. </li></ul>
    4. 4. The Apostles’ Creed <ul><li>As Christianity spread, this “ rule of faith ” or standard of teaching ensured that the preaching and teaching being heard was an authentic expression of the deposit of faith . </li></ul><ul><li>Also, the need was felt to have summaries of Christian beliefs to be &quot;confessed&quot; or professed by Converts or the Faithful. </li></ul>
    5. 5. The Apostles’ Creed <ul><li>Soon, the deposit of faith was expressed in a collection of short formula expressions called a creed . </li></ul><ul><li>The word “CREED” comes from the Latin word “Credo” which means “I believe” </li></ul><ul><li>The faith could be easily committed to memory and passed on orally to the next generation. </li></ul>
    6. 6. The Apostles’ Creed <ul><li>Why the need for creeds? </li></ul><ul><li>.Faith is not a out empty words but about reality. </li></ul><ul><li>In the Church, condensed formulas developed over the course of time; with their help, we can contemplate, express, learn, hand on, celebrate , and live out this reality. </li></ul>
    7. 7. The Apostles’ Creed <ul><li>How did the creeds come about? </li></ul><ul><li>.Goes back to Jesus, who commanded his disciples to baptise.(Matt 28:19) </li></ul><ul><li>So the original cell from which the later Creeds grew is the profession of faith in the Triune God. </li></ul>
    8. 8. The Apostles’ Creed <ul><li>There were various creeds that emerged and developed over time . </li></ul><ul><li>As the Church faced misunderstandings, dissensions and threats, it became necessary to respond with ever-clearer teaching . </li></ul><ul><li>The creeds help to clarify orthodox teaching and combat against heresies or “ false gospels ”. </li></ul>
    9. 9. The Apostles’ Creed <ul><li>The creeds express in a summarized way, the truths of the faith. </li></ul><ul><li>The two well known creeds are </li></ul><ul><li>1. The Apostles’ Creed </li></ul><ul><li>2. The Nicene Creed </li></ul>
    10. 10. The Apostles’ Creed I believe in God, the Father almighty Creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. (all bow) who was conceived by the Holy Spirit born of the Virgin Mary, (1)

    12. 12. 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 ever lasting AMEN (3)
    13. 13. The Apostles’ Creed <ul><li>The Apostles' Creed </li></ul><ul><li>considered to be a faithful summary of the apostles’ faith. </li></ul><ul><li>is based upon the most ancient formula used by the Roman Catholic Church. </li></ul><ul><li>divided into twelve articles, thus symbolizing the fullness of the apostolic faith by the number of the apostles. </li></ul>
    14. 14. 3 Parts of the Apostles’ Creed: 1. The first part deals with God the Father and creation. (article 1) The Apostles’ Creed Article 1: I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth;

    17. 17. <ul><li>A creed is not the totality of Christian faith. </li></ul><ul><li>It is a summary that stands for everything that is taught by the Catholic Church. </li></ul><ul><li>A creed is a symbol of something larger and, ultimately, of Someone. </li></ul><ul><li>The CCC, #170 says that our faith does not rest ultimately in formulas, but in the realities expressed by those formulas, which faith allows us to touch. </li></ul><ul><li>Our object is not a proposition, but a Person. </li></ul>The Apostles’ Creed
