Bones of Contention

Pope Francis concluded the so-called Year of Faith at St. Peter's Basilica with an unprecedented exposition, the alleged bones of St. Peter, the Bishop of Rome.

However there is a problem, there is no biblical evidence Peter was ever in Rome, much less the Bishop of Rome....

"But tradition says...."! Yes, but what did Jesus say regarding "tradition"?
"... Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.... in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.... laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men.... Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.... Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye" (Mar 7:5-13).
