149 The Canonicity of Scripture

In Episode 149, we talk about the canonicity of scripture. It refers to the process through which the books of the Bible were validated, clarified, and adopted by the early church leaders.

God alone determines canonicity. A book is neither canonical nor authoritative because of its age, legitimacy, or religious community. A book is regarded important because it is canonical, and not because it is or was valued. God established the scriptures' authority, and God's people only found it.
