The Gospels as the “Seal” of the Scriptures

  • Thank you Dr. Bird for this wonderful quote. It’s from the Didache, correct? I’m unable to find it in chapter 9 or anywhere. Am I looking in the right place?

    We would like to incorporate the quotation into one of our worship services at our church (www.calvarymemorial.com) as our pastor is currently preaching through John. The reference would be nice. Thanks.
