“…the apostles have agreed among themselves to preach and to write falsehood. But cannot be possible that the apostles should alone agree to do such a thing, because many Christians who lived in their time would also have to acknowledge and preach the untruth… why would they agree to such a thing, when for their preaching Christ nothing else but sorrow awaited them on earth?”
(St Sebastian of Jackson, ‘Preaching’ homily collection, 1899)
