In Ephesians 4:11 it states: And He gave some apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers. But many have omitted the apostles and prophets (even some claim teachers and pastors to be one office, instead of being two separate offices that do tie in) claiming that an apostle had to have seen the risen Christ or had to have seen Jesus, point blank; and claiming that prophets are no longer needed because we now have the Bible. But in Ephesians 12-13 states "For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: (13) Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ" (also, 1 Corinthians 12:28 backs this up)
My question is where did the teaching of neglectance of apostles and prophets come from since it is stated no where in the Bible? Where did the teaching that the office of a teacher only belongs to the pastor and doesn't have an office of its own?
What do you all have to say?
