Are Paul’s Writings Equally Inspired as the Gospels?

Episode 667 Show Notes 

From the Show

Peter himself referred to the letters of the Apostle Paul as scripture. Listen to what Paul himself says in 1 Corinthians 14, “Or was it from you that the word of God came? Or are you the only ones it has reached?If anyone thinks that he is a prophet, or spiritual, he should acknowledge that the things I am writing to you are a command of the Lord.” Not only does Peter think Paul’s writings are inspired scripture, but Paul refers to his own writings this way as well.
