1.  Traditions of apostles (2 Thess. 3:6; 2:15).
    a.  Refers to teachings that originated in the mind of God  (Matt. 18:18; Gal. 1:11-14; Acts 2:42; Jude 3).
    b.  Tradition is instruction or practice which either comes from God or man.

2.  Traditions of men (Col. 2:8).
    a.  Elders (Matt. 15:2-3; Mk. 7:3-11).
    b.  Fathers (Gal. 1:14; 1 Peter 1:18).
