There is nothing in the Bible, nor historical records, as far as I know that the apostle Peter was ever in Rome much less buried there.
Peter died in Rome. Just because it might not be in the Bible doesn’t mean it wasn’t true.
Read the Early Church Fathers — they knew the apostles and they knew the facts.
On the contrary, all of the historical evidence, beginning with Ignatius of Antioch, who died a martyr in AD 110 and knew Peter & Paul personally, points to Peter going to Rome and being martyred there under Nero. The tomb under the high altar of St. Peter's shows evidence of being a Christian pilgrimage site in ancient times, and bears the inscription -- in Greek, not Latin -- Petros eni, "Peter is here".
Peter wrote from Babylon, a code name for Rome. The actual city of Babylon had long been destroyed.
There is nothing in the bible....
Just because something is not in the Bible doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. The Bible is not a history book. It doesn’t mention airplanes either.
...nor historical records...” There are plenty of historical records written by church fathers indicating that Peter wrote 1 Peter in Rome and the excavations underneath the altar at St. Peter’s gave ample evidence he was there. You should do some research on this. The argument that Peter was not in Rome is one that has been disregarded by most scholars.
We do have some sketchy accounts from possible witnesses who claimed that Peter did preach in Rome.
However, if those accounts went under the same scrutiny that the books of the Bible went under, they would have been ignored as rumors without proper validation.
Which is what we as honest God fearing Christians should do. If God wanted it to be understood and believed that Peter not only made it to Rome to preach, but that he was also considered the first Bishop of Rome, Than God would have made it abundantly clear for the whole world to know.
However, it seems that only the Catholic Church believes it to be. The same Church that teaches Mary was immaculately conceived and thus deserves to be worshiped along side Christ.
