Justin Martyr on Scripture and Traditions

"Pay attention to those things I shall mention from Holy Scripture, not from some other explanation. The ears have a need not for traditions to be expounded but for one thing to be heard."
Justin (c.100-c.165), Dialogue with Trypho

This work depicts a fictionalised dialogue with Trypho, a Jew, but mutatis mutandis, the same principle would apply to Christians - there is a need for one thing to be heard: the Holy Scriptures which are the Word of God written.
