MetadataShow full item record
Professor Blume takes us through the various factors involved in the compilation of the books of the New Testament. After a brief historical exposition on the early church, he touches on early canons with their strengths and weaknesses, continues on to touch briefly on antilegomena, homolegoumena and the factors that made each book fall into one or the other. After going through the development of the canon itself he walks through several periods of the church where the canon experienced differing levels of acceptance and questioning.
