TSP 16: "Where We Got the Bible: The Development of the Canon"

In this podcast I cover the story of how we got the Bible--specifically, we look at the way the canon of Scripture was formed.

Below you'll find the pdf of notes and outline for the material covered. You can follow along here if you'd like.

Which books were "Scripture" for the Jews in Jesus' day? Why are there seven extra books in Catholic Bibles? Did the Catholic Church add these books? What about the "Lost Gospels"? Why aren't they accepted as Scripture?

Here we begin to answer all of these questions. I hope you enjoy it.

Finally, a huge amount of thanks must go to Saint Joseph's Communications, who support this podcast.

Some Hebrew Bibles have different number of books, where they combine books into one book.
