comment Is a bishop in Roman Catholic tradition equal in authority with the apostles?
Public revelation (aka divine revelation): beliefs revealed to the apostles, which all members are bound to hold. Private revelation = heavenly messages or Marian apparitions that have been designated "worthy of belief" by the Church, and which a given member of the faithful is not bound to hold.

comment Why did the council of Laodicea condemn “Judaizing” Sabbath rest?
@Hello, then you agree with me that "Sabbath" refers exclusively to the Hebrew Sabbath - Friday sundown to Saturday sundown. Regarding the "Lord's Day", it was never used prior to Christ's resurrection. And since the Resurrection occurred on Sunday, it is not unreasonable to conclude that this new terminology refers to this "eighth day of creation", distinct from the Hebrew day of worship. Which happens to agree with the testimony of the earliest Christians, who are quite clear about observing the Lord's Day in lieu of the Sabbath.

Wiki articles are usually reliable, especially when sourced with references, and the one on Judaizers is no exception.
