Did Jesus establish a collection of invisible believers or a unified, visible, and apostolic Church on earth?
Show Notes

In this episode of The Cordial Catholic Podcast we talk about the nature of the Christian Church. Did Jesus intend it to be an invisible collection of believers? Is this how the Early Church understood itself? Is this how the whole of the Christian Church understood itself to be for the first 1,500 years of church history?

Spoiler alert: the answer is, no. Instead, I argue, the Church always thought of itself as visible, singular, and united in a hierarchical structure until the Protestant Reformation.
