The Gospels and the Epistles

"Gospel study enables us both to keep our Lord in clear view and to hold before our minds the relational frame of discipleship to him. The doctrines on which our discipleship rests are clearest in the epistles, but the nature of discipleship itself is most vividly portrayed in the Gospels….  We should think of the theology of the epistles as preparing us to understand better the disciple relationship with Christ that is set forth in the Gospels."

-- J.I. Packer
