- Dear Shinu
The Apostolic Tradition is that Christ Is Head Of Church.(colossian.1:18).Ephesians2:20 THECORNERSTONE being Christ,you too are built upon the foundation laid by apostles and prophets. This is called apostolic Faith and Tradition.
The Orthodox Study Bible is a common Bible used by All orthodox Churches especially oriental orthodox churches. What I previously Quoted is from orthodox study Bible.St.John 10:11-19 is referring Christ the Good Shepherd.
With Best Regards&prayers
