Bible is part of Catholic Sacred Tradition

I’m curious as to why Protestants accept the bible (and some even seem to worship it) but reject other aspects of Sacred Tradition.

Jesus did not write a book. There is no evidence that Jesus said, “Now this is important; write this down.” No, he said to go out and spread the Good News of the Kingdom of Heaven. Some spread the Good News by retelling of Jesus’ life verbally and some had the gift of writing and literacy and wrote his story.

There were many writings to choose from and the Church fathers prayed to the Holy Spirit to help them select the books of the Bible that were inspired. The Church began around 33 AD but the canon of the bible wasn’t determined until a few hundred years later using Tradition of the Catholic Church.
