Matthew Barrett argues that Jesus and the apostles have just as convictional a doctrine of Scripture as Paul or Peter, but it will only be discovered if one reads the Gospels within their own canonical horizon and covenantal context. The nature of Scripture that Jesus and the Gospel writers presuppose may not be addressed directly, but it manifests itself powerfully when one reads the words of Jesus and the Gospel writers within the Old Testament's promise-fulfillment pattern. Nothing demonstrates scripture's divine origin and trustworthy nature more than the gospel of Jesus Christ. In the advent of the Son of God, the Word has become made flesh (Jn. 1:14), announcing to Jew and Gentile alike that God has come through on his inscripturated, covenant word.
