Considering all the rehashing thats being diccussed on "oral tradition" I thought I would ask a question that I asked before and never received an answer. Please spare me all of the copy and pasted 10,000 word dissertations from Thomas Aquinas and the like. Here goes: CAN YOU NAME ONE ORAL, EXTRABIBLICAL TRADITION, DEMONSTRABLY TRACED TO THE APOSTOLIC AGE, WHICH IS NECESSARY FOR THE FAITH AND PRACTICE OF THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST. I think the key phrase here is "necessary for the faith and practice of the Church....." You must also be able to historically prove which Apostle the tradition originated or it is resting on sinking sand. Now name one and we can talk.
