Yes, absolutely.
Totally agree on this. In an odd fit of synchronicity I came to that conclusion (or very similar) earlier this year. I suddenly realised that the only parts of the bible I ever paid full attention to was parts that referred to the actual words of Jesus. Virtually every time I have ever quoted the NT in support of making some kind of contribution to a debate it has been a "Jesus said:" quote rather than anything else.

Its fun when I read things like the quoted exchange.
