Guest: Eric Huntsman, PhD, Professor of Ancient Scripture and Early Christianity at BYU  Later this week, Pope Francis intends to meet with the leader of the powerful Russian Orthodox Church. Here’s why that matters: The Russian Orthodox Church is the second largest Christian church in the world after the Catholic Church, but the two religions have been estranged for nearly a millennium. Never has the head of the Russian Orthodox Church met with the Roman Catholic Pope, so when Patriarch Kirill I and Pope Francis sit down this week, it’ll be a significant step toward healing the schism.
