The Canon of Scripture
Be sure to listen to this week's Mortification of Spin. Todd, Carl, and Aimee examine questions like, how can we trust the books in the Bible to be the only Word of God, or "canon", to which no man should add or subtract? What exactly is the canon and why is it important? What are its fundamental flaws, (and if there are any), then how can we be confident in it? The canon can be an intimidating topic so naturally we spared no expense in bringing out the big guns: Michael Kruger. Dr. Kruger is President of Reformed Seminary Charlotte, Samuel C. Patterson Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity, and author of numerous books. Listen at MortificationofSpin.org.
We were privileged to have Michael Kruger join us last April in Bryn Mawr for the Philadelphia Conference on Reformed Theology 2016 conference How Firm a Foundation: The Bible's Authority, Sufficiency, and Clarity. Michael spoke on the canonization of the New Testament in the pre-conference, Why These Books and No Others? Later he joined Philip Ryken, Derek Thomas, and Richard Phillips for the conference plenary sessions. The audio from PCRT 2016 is now available on ReformedResources.org via CD, MP3 on CD or MP3 download.
