Canon of Scripture 7 - OT Books to Bible

Preacher: Ben Phillips

Series: The Canon of Scripture: How did the Bible become the Bible?

In this installment of our ongoing study of the Canon of Scripture, we return to the documents of the Old Testament and look at their development and composition. The study of OT documents and canonization is much more complex than NT, owing to the ancientness of the events, greater spans of time between event and composition, and language shifts. However, understanding the validity of the OT documents requires us to have a right understanding of how historiography works and a sense of some of the scholarship that has gone into studying these books.
