Another instance of the sacrificial terminology comes from a simple command. Neither did he teach others to ordain any men or women priests and neither did any of the other original apostles. The only priesthood St. Peter claimed Jesus created was.

So where did the Church’s law banning women from the priesthood originally come from. In the case of some church laws, the answer to such a question is obvious. We know instinctively, for example, that a parent Did Christ rule out women priests book child may never marry, as.
