Bible NT Canons - Church Fathers, Councils & Apocrypha

bible canons

The New Testament Bible was debated for over 300 years following Jesus' Cruxifixion.

The canon of the New Testament is a set of books Christians regard as divinely inspired and constituting the New Testament of the Christian Bible. Historically, there was major disagreement over which books to include and exclude ('Apocrypha') from the New Testament Bible. This conflict raged on in the Church councils and synods between Church fathers.

Diversity in early Christianity meant each church had their own unique version of Christian beliefs and rituals. No single version of Christianity or Christian scripture was universally accepted until much later.

After much debate, the New Testament Bible canon was officially announced in 397 AD at the Council of Carthage (Tunisia); 367 years after Jesus' crucifixion.
