Contents The development of the Christian biblical canon: a survey of the early period -- Jewish lists -- Greek Christian lists -- Latin Christian lists -- The Syriac Christian list -- Selected Greek, Syriac, Latin, and Hebrew manuscripts -- Appendix: Antilegomena and the more prominent Apocrypha
Summary The Bible took shape over the course of centuries, and today Christian groups continue to disagree over details of its contents. The differences among these groups typically involve the Old Testament, as they mostly accept the same 27-book New Testament. An essential avenue for understanding the development of the Bible are the many early lists of canonical books drawn up by Christians and, occasionally, Jews. Despite the importance of these early lists of books, they have remained relatively inaccessible. This comprehensive volume redresses this unfortunate situation by presenting the early Christian canon lists all together in a single volume
