Early Church Fathers adopted different New Testament Bible Canons
The New Testament Bible Canon was developed over a number of years. It was a slow, complicated, and often bloody process. Eventually, the 27 books were decided by the Church Fathers.
The earliest acknowledgment of the 27 New Testament Bible Canon appears in the 39th Festal Letter written by Athanasius of Alexandria.
