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)
