How Do We Know We Have the Correct Books of the Bible?

Episode 322 Show Notes 

From the Show

The church didn’t choose the books to be included in the canon; rather, they recognized the books that were canonical, that the Holy Spirit had inspired. So, the work of the church was in recognizing the authenticity of the texts rather than determining their authenticity.

—Michael Horton
