   As Jesus ascended into Heaven He did not pass by a leather-bound Bible or some other playbook on its way down.

   Of course not, but it’s surprising how little we know about what came next, especially after the Apostle Paul left the scene.

   And how did our traditions arise? Did they come from the Bible? Or from people before us (what people?) who considered a variety of reasons?

   Big questions with complex answers.

   The Christian History Time Line goes a long way in showing how to start thinking about this. It’s put together by Rose Publishing that produces a variety of “handy” (and responsible) ways to think about the Christian past and present practice. You may want to put what’s here alongside your church’s faith statement and practice patterns to consider your spiritual heritage.

   This could underlie several Sunday school lessons or serve as a small group exercise.
