Jesus Himself gave the two disciples going to Emmaus a thorough lesson on the scriptural imperative: "Oh fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken" (Luke:24:25). This reference to "the prophets" cannot be interpreted as "tradition and also the scriptures." Jesus is referring to the Scriptures alone: "And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself" (Luke:24:27). If He held them accountable for their unbelief about the Scriptures, is it not a reasonable conclusion that they must have had access to the same? --TBC
