Are the teachings of the apostles and prophets as authoritative as what Jesus taught? What was the source of their message? Were the apostles, including Paul, inspired by the Holy Spirit to receive Divine revelation? What were the qualifications of the office of apostle? Was Paul an eyewitness of the resurrection? What consequences follow if we reject or accept and obey what inspired men revealed? Did Jesus express more love and less rebuke and condemnation than the apostles? Did God approve and endorse what the apostles taught?
I believe the answers are an emphatic “yes.”
