The post explores the process and principles behind establishing the Bible canon, focusing on both the Hebrew and the Greek New Testament Canon. It underscores the requirements for books to earn canonical status, i.e., evidence of divine inspiration, coherence with other biblical teachings, and endorsement by apostolic authorities. Discussions include the formation and organization of the Hebrew Canon, issues with Apocryphal texts and their contradictions, historical perspectives on the Apocrypha, and the authority of New Testament Apocryphal writings. The post reiterates the Bible’s integrity as God's inspired truth.
Why are there only these 66 books in the Bible? Because God is the ultimate author of the Bible, and He inspired only these 66. All Scripture is breathed out of the mouth of God (Mt 4:4; 2 Tm 3:16). What the human authors wrote did not originate with them but with God, who moved upon them (2 Sm 23:2; 1 Pt 1:20–21).
