New Testament Canon: Which Books Are Scripture and Why?

How did the New Testament canon come together, and why are there 27 books within it? How do we know that important books aren’t missing or if there are non-inspired books that were included? These are important questions that Christians should have answers to.

In this course, we look at the criteria used to recognize inspired New Testament books, how early the books of the New Testament were accepted as God’s Word, and why the apostles expected God to reveal more Scripture through them. We will also discuss misconceptions about the Council of Nicea, the gnostic gospels, and the Apocrypha. After taking this course, you will have a better understanding of why the books of the New Testament are exactly what God intended us to have.
