Introduction to New Testament (RLST 152)
The Christian faith is based upon a canon of texts considered to be holy scripture. How did this canon come to be?

Reasons for inclusion in or exclusion from the canon included apostolic authority, general acceptance, and theological appropriateness for "proto-orthodox" Christianity.
