Equal importance to Bible and Traditions.

” And the things thou hast heard of me among many witnesses the same commit thou to faithful men who shall be able to teach others also,” 2Tim.2: 2.

“And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book,” John 20:30, also read John 21:25; where St. John asserts that the unwritten tradition is comparatively more voluminous than the Bible and that he wrote the gospel to meet with a definite purpose, “That ye might believe that Jesus is Christ, the Son of God; and that believing, ye might have life through his name,” John 20:31. 

So is the case with all the books in the Bible; that they were written either to explain a point, mostly of doxology, morality or social order or in reply to specific questions and hence does not allude in any way that those matters not poignantly dealt with in such letters and Gospels would be of lesser magnitude or importance rather, we are advised to adhere to both with equal importance at the same time.
