References from Holy Bible to the Nicene-Creed
- We recite the Nicene Creeed (Vishwasa Pramanam) druing the Holy Qurbana and in all our prayers.
This Creed which was prepared with great wisdom and prudence, as well as with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, by the Church Fathers at the First Ecumenical Council or Synod in the city of Nicea, in AD 325 and the last five articles added to it by the Church Fathers at Second Ecumenical Council Synod took place in Constantinople, in AD 381.
I recently saw the following, where you can see the references from Holy Bible to the Nicene-Creed, and wanted to share it with you all.
