The Gospels as the “Seal” of the Scriptures

Wonderful quote from a Syriac document called The Teaching of the Apostles (9):

The apostles further appointed: At the conclusion of all the Scriptures let the Gospels be read, as being the seal of all the Scriptures and let the people listen to it standing upon their feet: because it is the Gospel of the redemption of all men.

I know that Jonathan Pennington would agree!

    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.
