Bible Canon

This page is related to the Bible Canon and how it came to be. The Old Testament Canon had been given through the Jews. I believe that the New Testament began to selected in the first century with the general recognition of the writings of the apostles as being “scripture”, “that which is written”. — 1 Corinthians 4:6; Colossians 4:16; 1 Thessalonians 5:27.

I do not necessarily agree with every detail provided by other authors.
