... there exists a close connection and communication between
sacred tradition, and
sacred Scripture ...
both of them
flowing from the same well spring ...
merge into a unity and
tend toward the same end.
Sacred Scripture is the word of God
consigned to writing under the inspiration of the Spirit;
in its full purity God's word
entrusted to the apostles by Christ.
... it is not from sacred Scripture alone
that the Church draws her certainty about everything
which has been revealed.
