The development of the New Testament canon is a key issue for Christianity When were the documents accepted as canon Who determined which documents would be canonized What criteria were used to select the canonThese uestions and like them are the subject of this book The author is keen for the reader to understand not only now the NT canon came into existence but also how certain teachings from those Scriptures became the orthodox view while other interpretations were discarded as hereticalOut of all the uestions one remains unanswered satisfactorily in my view And that is the selection criteria for the NT documents Allert makes reference to early church fathers who saw the continuity from the Old Testament especially the Torah through the teaching of the Messiah and the apostolic continuation of this teaching tradition This implies that the Old Testament provided the selection criteria for the New Testament documentsThat means that the Old Testament as the selection criteria also provides the interpretive criteria for the New Testament documents Interpretations of any New Testament passage that are not in agreement with the Old Testament for example interpretations of Acts 10 11 or Col 216 that suggest a change in the Old Testament need to be reevaluated in the light of the Old Testament not cut loose from the Old Testament to effectively create a new set of beliefsThe eual authority of the two testaments is tied up in the canon issue Allert s study is important because it highlights forgotten aspects of the development of the New Testament canon and its connection with the Tanakh

High View of Scripture? A The Authority of the Bible and the Formation of the New Testament Canon Evangelical Ressourcement Ancient Sources for the Churchs Future Read & download Þ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Where did the Bible come from Author Craig D Allert encourages evangelicals to ask that uestion In A High View of Scripture Allert introduces his audience to the diverse history of the canon's development. Evangelicals are supposed to be totally devoted to the Bible Sola Scriptura we shout But as Craig Allert shows Evangelicals are just as prone to following traditions as any other branch of Christendom Just where in the Bible does it say to close your eyes when you prayAllert writes What is actually happening in contemporary North American evangelical circles is that traditionalism has gradually crept into our understanding or lack thereof of the fundamentals Jaroslav Pelikan s famous statement is apt here Tradition is the living faith of the dead traditionalism is he dead faith of the living Traditionalism is doing or believing something simply because it is a custom even if it is devoid of understanding meaning andor significance This is what contemporary evangelicals have done in retaining their core set of essentials The evangelical is exhorted to believe the sore set of doctrines because they have always been seen as essential Thus not only have certain nonessentials been given essential status but also some foundational aspects of theology have been underemphasized or even ignored and therefore undervalued and this to the detriment of the body of Christ The rich liturgical tradition of the church becomes confined to musically induced emotionalism The importance of the community of faith for the life of the believer is reduced to crass marketing strategies and the newest get spiritual uick scheme The living voice of the Bible in theological history becomes lost in individual interpretation and defense of a rather static propositionalism A High View of Scripture The Authority of the Bible and the Formation of the New Testament Canon 33 34Evangelicals have been used by God to preserve and fight for some very important doctrines However we always need to re examine our beliefs to make sure we are not simply holding on to ideas and doctrines because that s what we ve always believed Allert s book is about how the NT Canon was formed Most evangelicals and most Christians in general have no idea how we got our Bible This is peculiar since we say we believe it is the Word of God Wouldn t you want to know how the Word of God got into your hands
