Is there Scripture to support the office of a priest in the New Testament church?

Q: Is there Scripture to support the office of a priest in the New Testament church?

A: Yep. The scriptural evidence can be found throughout the four Gospels.

You may have noticed Jesus working with a dozen hand picked men, known as the Apostles, with whom he shared (among other things) the Last Supper.

The events of the Last Supper included the eternal fulfillment of the old Jewish Passover, the establishment of the New Covenant, the initiation of the New Covenant Ministerial Priesthood, the receiving of the essential Liturgy of the Catholic Mass, and the institution of the sacrament of Holy Communion, which anticipated Christ’s definitive sacrifice for sin, which remains the official remembrance of Christ’s suffering and death on the cross, until he comes again.

It was these same 12 who faithfully passed along all these truths, literally establishing Christ’s Church upon them, some 1500 years before the first Protestant ever thumped a Bible.

These same guys also wrote all the New Testament scripture, the meaning of which remains authentically and exclusively Catholic, in spite of the thousands of weird and wacky personal interpretations that people have come up with since.

The question you should be asking is: Why didn’t somebody tell you all this before, why didn’t they know all this, and/or why did they try to keep this information from you?
