Jesus has all Authority. Period.

We need faith based on Jesus, not on how right we are. If I get life from having correct theology, then I can't be receiving that life from Jesus. 

In the same way, if I get life from my ideas on how to interpret certain key passages of the Bible, then I can't get that life from Jesus. In short, if we place the bible in general ahead of Jesus in particular, then it becomes extremely easy to minimize Jesus or even remove Jesus all together from our actual lives. 

We then preach a gospel of "trust this book" instead of "trust this man." Christianity is about Jesus first, and everything else is second to Him.
