 Formation of the New Testament Canon

Taught by Professor Bart D. Ehrman | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

Contrary to popular belief, the canon of the New Testament's 27 books did not emerge at the very beginning of the Christian movement. Although written during the 1st century, or soon thereafter, it took 300 years before these books were declared to be canonical.
