Jim Papandrea on the Catholicism of Early Christianity
Prof. Jim Papandrea of the Garrett-Evangelical Seminary (Northwestern University) argues that many of these critiques are misplaced and that early Christianity was very Catholic (capital C) in nature. He discusses issues such as tradition, faith and works, the papacy, and veneration of the Saints. The conversation is very interesting given that Prof. Papandrea was once Protestant and is now Catholic, why Tony was once Catholic and is now Protestant.

They would have to see for themselves," said James Papandrea, a Catholic who is associate professor of church history at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary in the Chicago suburb of Evanston, Illinois.
"I think anyone would want to see for themselves. We believe what we see, we believe our senses, and it's only natural that if somebody says the Lord is alive and you knew he was dead, you'd say, 'Show me.' The disciples, even after all of Jesus' teachings and all his hints about death and resurrection, they seem not to have expected him to rise from the dead. They automatically went into skeptic mode. We have Peter and John running to the empty tomb, to see that it's empty," Papandrea said. As Papandrea told CNS, "If something is in the Gospels, it's in there for a reason. "Many of us have the advantage where it's normal to believe in the Resurrection," said Papandrea, whose books include "Handed Down: The Catholic Faith of the Early Christians. "We grew up and our parents believed it, and why wouldn't we?" He added that popular culture now holds up many Christ figures. "If you watch the superhero movies, they make liberal use of Christian themes, death and resurrection. These themes recur, but they also use themes from Greek and Roman mythology, Nordic mythology, as if they have equal cultural value. A lot of people treat the story of the Passion and Resurrection of Christ as just one more myth." The real difference about Jesus and superheroes, according to Papandrea, is that "the resurrection of Christ is not something that happened on top of Mount Olympus before time, but God broke into time." The bromide that "you can't have Easter Sunday without Good Friday" is true as far as it goes, but "it would be just as valid to wear a little gold empty tomb around your neck," Papandrea said, noting how Protestants tend to wear a cross rather than a crucifix "because they know Jesus didn't stay on the cross.
