How Did God Made The Holy Bible? (part 5)

Have a blessed Sunday to everybody. This series is now down to the last three part. I hope and pray that somehow you learned something very helpful through this post.
THE FINALIZATION OF THE BIBLE
I. The Old Testament. By the year 300 B.C. (at the latest) all Old Testament books had been written, collected, revered, and recognized as official, canonical books. Many believe Ezra, the prophet led the first recognition council.
.
II. The New Testament. During the Third Council of Carthage, held in A.D. 397, the 27 New Testament books were declared to be canonical. The twenty-seven New Testament books were not inspired because the Carthage Council proclained them to be, but rather the Council proclaimed them to be such because they were already inspired.
.
This series is from my hand-out notes during our six months Church Membership Class in LWCM , Banilad, Cebu, Philippines. The class was conducted by our Senior Pastor Mel Caparros.

Thank you for your visit to my blog, Grace. No better place to my put my thank you note than here. God's Word, the Bible, is the enduring source of divine wisdom and inspiration for all of us Christians.

It's nice to know from Uncle Lee that even people who are not Christians find it a good thing to pray with the Bible.

I pray that you and your family always remain safe and secure in God's loving care.
