Q&A

Where in the New Testament are "priests" mentioned?

Question:

The New Testament mentions three categories of Church<br /> leaders: bishops, presbyters, and deacons. So how can the Catholic Church justify its office of &quot;priest&quot;? The New Testament writers seem to understand &quot;bishop&quot; and &quot;presbyter&quot; to be synonymous terms for the same office (Acts 20:17-38).
