Rabbi Elchanan Lewis

Kislev 12, 5769
Question
Shalom, Were Jewish Sages & their words superior than Jewish Prophets & their words? Is Talmud superior than Jewish Bible?
Answer
There shouldn't be any contradiction between the words of our sages and the words of our prophets. Our sages in the Talmud are the masters of Halacha and our prophets are the masters of prophesies. When it comes to Halacha we learn from and follow our sages and when we learn Tanach [the bible] we learn our prophets.
