“Jesus knew he wasnt going to be on earth in person, so he chose Peter as the head of the Apostles, yes, the first Pope.”
Jesus actually set up elders/bishops (church government), and left us the Bible, and sent the Holy Spirit.
You are partyly right and partly wrong. The first bishops were the Apostles. Christ gave the keys of the kingdom to Peter and said he would build his church on him.
It’s in the Bible.....or did your Bible take that out?
