(Some denominations include additional holy scriptures).The Old Testament includes the books of the Hebrew Bible or protocanon, and in various Christian denominations also includes deuterocanonical books. Orthodox Christians, Catholics and Protestants. Roger Beckwith’s long out-of-print study is both a historical and theological look at the Old Testament canon and the resultant beliefs of the New Testament church.

This book, the result of many years’ study, is a major work of scholarship on a subject which has been neglected in recent times. It is both historical and theological, but the author’s first consideration has been to make a. The canon of the New Testament is the set of books many Christians regard as divinely inspired and constituting the New Testament of the Christian most, it is an agreed-upon list of twenty-seven books that includes the canonical Gospels, Acts, letters attributed to various apostles, and Revelation, though there are many textual books of the canon of the New Testament.

The 24 Books of Judaism are equivalent to the 39 Books common to all Christian Old Testaments, for Samuel, Kings, Chronicles, and Ezra-Nehemiah were each divided into two parts in the Christian canons, and the one Book of the Twelve Prophets was split into twelve books, one for each prophet.

As a result, it is often claimed that the New Testament was a late phenomenon. If Jesus is Lord, then we want to have the canon that He followed, and we know that His Old Testament canon was the thirty-nine-book Protestant Old Testament canon. Things are more complicated when it comes to the New Testament.

Yet, church history shows that there was an early consensus about the New Testament canon. Biblical literature - Biblical literature - The Christian canon: The Christian church received its Bible from Greek-speaking Jews and found the majority of its early converts in the Hellenistic world.

The Greek Bible of Alexandria thus became the official Bible of the Christian community, and the overwhelming number of quotations from the Hebrew Scriptures in the New Testament are derived from it.
