Sermons on the Apostles' Creed : Preached in the Autumn of 1863, at the Episcopal Jews' Chapel of the London Society for Promoting Christianity Amongst the Jews (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Sermons on the Apostles' Creed: Preached in the Autumn of 1863, at the Episcopal Jews' Chapel of the London Society for Promoting Christianity Amongst the Jews The silence, then, of Scripture - the silence of all ecclesias tical writers for upwards of three centuries - the variety of the forms of the early Creeds - and finally, the silence of the Nicene Council - are more than sufficient to Show that the Apostles' Creed is not so called, because it was written by the Apostles. Though, however, it was not drawn up by the Apostles themselves, yet it may well be called Apostolic, because it contains the doctrines taught by the Apostles, and because, as the Creed of Irenaeus, and other early Creeds prove, it is in substance the same as was used in the Church from the times of the Apostles themselves. As we come to compare it article by article with the writings of the Apostles, we shall see that it is indeed an Apostolic Creed.
