Patristic Quote of the Day

He had said previously that the presbyters of Ephesus had been summoned to Miletus. Now he calls them bishops, that is, overseers. One city could not have several bishops, but under the name bishops Paul indicates these presbyters as being in fact priests, for the order was connected, and in many it was practically the same.—The Venerable Bede, Commentary on Acts (20:28)
