Biblical Evidence for Catholicism: Bible on the Veneration of Angels & Men

Biblical Evidence for Catholicism: Bible on the Veneration of Angels & Men

'In several other instances, men are also bowed down to and venerated, with no disapproval in the text; for example, Paul and Silas (Acts 16:29) and Daniel (Dan 2:46-48; by the king!). The Greek word for “fell down before” in Acts 16:29 is prospipto. It is also used of worship of Jesus in five passages (Mk 3:11; 5:33; 7:25; Lk 8:28, 47). But where men are involved, the meaning is honor, or veneration.'
