Disciple of Paul...or Jesus?

"It's really important for us that the words of Jesus become more important than the words of Paul, that we see Paul's ministry through the light of the gospels and that we don't see Jesus through the light of the Epistles. That's really important. Why?...because we are following Presence. I don't want to be a disciple of Paul. I want to be a disciple of Jesus." - Graham Cooke 

Oh, I love this...Jesus is the lens for interpreting Scripture. Man...I wonder what would be modified in the church if this order of seeing and interpreting was put into practice more often. Interesting to think about.
