Traditions and the Bible

In this respect one need to know that the Holy Bible is the best form of tradition handed down to us. To elucidate further, we have both written tradition that is The Holy Bible and unwritten tradition that is testimony and instructions of the fathers and doctors of the Church. 

The fact that the unwritten tradition is equally vibrant, important and imperative as to the written tradition is well explained in Bible itself.

“Those things which ye have both learned and received and heard and seen in me, do; and the God of peace will be with you,” Phil.4: 9.

“Brethren, stand fast and hold to the traditions which ye have been taught by us, whether by word or by epistle,” 2Thes.2: 15.

“Having many things to write unto you, I would not write with paper and ink; but I trust to come unto you and speak with you face to face,” 2John 12.

“And the rest will I set in order when I come,” 1Cor 11:34.
