Faith of the Universal Syrian Orthodox Church - III



Bible and Holy Traditions


Holy Bible is revered as the word of God. Every Sundays and other sacred days, Bible is read. (A lectionary specifies what to read.)

During the sacramental rites and common prayers, the Bible is read by the priest and, as a mark of reverence, candles are lit and held on either sides.

The traditions of the church that have been handed down by the early Church Fathers are revered and observed strictly as that of Bible.

The Holy Bible and the traditions of the Church are esteemed as the criteria of the Church's faith.
