The Canon of Scripture 1 - Overview Part 1

Preacher: Ben Phillips

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

Category: Bible Study

In this series for our Fall Theological Forum we study the history and process of how the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments came to be regarded as Holy Scripture. In this lecture we learn some of the basic components of the Bible and are introduced to some of the key concepts in studying the canon. What books do Episcopalians/Anglicans regard as canonical, what does the word "Testament" mean, as well as the first part of our two part overview of the history of the canonization process, which stretches over 1,000 years.
