Episode 416: Recently, an article was published concerning “How We Got the Bible.” Having done some research on the subject, I decided to respond to the claims being made in that article. I start out with a run through 2 Timothy 3.16 for orientation. Then, I tackle the articles assertions paragraph. As will become evident, many assertions are made with no basis in reality, history, or, most importantly, Scripture.
Since I reference it, here is the bibliographic information on Beckwith’s book:
Beckwith, Roger. The Old Testament Canon of the New Testament Church. Grand Rapids, MI: Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co., 1985.
