130. Canon of Scripture



The Apocrypha is NOT Scripture:

Romans 3:2 - "...unto them were committed the oracles of God."

The Jews never recognised the Greek Apocrypha as part of their canon of Scripture, even though it is very sympathetic towards them.


The canon was completed by AD70:

Daniel 9:24 - "Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy."
