F.F. BRUCE ON THE NEW TESTAMENT CANON


“One thing must be emphatically stated. The New Testament books did not become authoritative for the Church because they were formally included in a canonical list; on the contrary, the Church included them in her canon because she already regarded them as divinely inspired, recognizing their innate worth and generally apostolic authority, direct or indirect.”

– F.F. Bruce (The New Testament Documents, p. 22)

F.F. BRUCE ON THE CHRIST MYTH


“Some writers may toy with the fancy of a ‘Christ-myth,’ but they do not do so on the ground of historical evidence. The historicity of Christ is as axiomatic for an unbiased historian as the historicity of Julius Caesar. It is not historians who propagate the ‘Christ-myth’ theories.”

– F.F. Bruce (The New Testament Documents, p. 123
