ECHO with Bishop Donald Hying
Proclaim the Gospel to Every Creature

How do we know today what Jesus really said and taught over 2000 years ago? Where do we go to truly know and understand all that God has revealed? In this chapter, we will be exploring how Jesus Christ himself established the Church as the "pillar and bulwark of the truth" (1 Timothy 3:15) and how we can come to really know what Jesus did and taught through Sacred Scripture, Sacred Tradition, and the teaching authority of the Catholic Church. Through the gift of the Church and Divine Revelation, we can come to know with certainty and confidence what God has revealed about himself and the human person and how we are to live our lives as Christians even 2000 years after Christ walked on earth.
