Chrysostom on the Primacy of Scripture

"Regarding the things I say, I should supply the proofs, so I will not seem to rely on my own opinions, but rather, prove them with Scripture, so that the matter will remain certain and steadfast."
John Chrysostom, Homily 8, On Repentance and the Church.

Cf Luther, writing in The Babylonian Captivity of the Church: "...what is asserted without the scriptures or proven revelation may be held as an opinion, but need not be believed."
