Cyril of Alexandria on Luke 10:16 & Apostolic Authority

Luke 10:16 "He that heareth you heareth me: and he that despiseth you despiseth me: and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me. "

- Whereby He teaches, that whatever is said by the holy Apostles must be received, since he who heareth them heareth Christ, and an inevitable punishment therefore hangs over heretics who neglect the words of the Apostles; for it follows, and he who despises you despises me.- Cyril of Alexandria (412 AD).
