deposit of faith


#1

Hello all,

As some of you know, I hang around and ask questions on my way to becoming Catholic. Can anyone explain the term “deposit of faith?” Thanks in advance.

Here is the definition from the Catechism:

Deposit of faith: The heritage of faith contained in Sacred Scripture and Tradition, handed on in the Church from the time of the Apostles, from which the Magisterium draws all that it proposes for belief as being divinely revealed.
