  6. Different styles of writing/types of Literature • Poetry • Prose • Wisdom • History • Prophecy • Parables • Etiological stories (how something came to be)

  7. The Bible is Like Christ • Fully human (Uses human words and actions), uses the language of men • Fully divine

  8. Original Languages of the Bible • Hebrew • Greek • Aramaic

  9. Diaspora (Dispersion) • Jews living outside the Holy Land • Created a need for Greek Scriptures

  10. Septuagint • Greek or Alexandrian canon

  12. Deuterocanonical Books • Books written originally in Greek and were removed from Protestant Bibles • 2nd Canon • Jesus quoted from Septuagint, which Included Deut. books

  13. The Church existed before the New Testament was Written • Preaching was emphasized • Most apostles did not write anything • Thousands became Christians without reading any of the NT! • 1-50 AD – Oral (apostolic) teaching/preaching • 50-100 AD – NT written

  14. Timeline of the Bible

  15. After Jesus • 1-50 AD: Oral teaching – Apostolic teaching (preaching) • 50-100 AD: NT written. Epistles, then Gospels and Acts, then Revelation

  16. After Jesus and the Apostles, no new Public Revelation

  17. Hebrews 1:1-4. Jesus is the fullness of Revelation • In times past, God spoke in partial and various ways to our ancestors through the prophets; in these last days, he spoke to us through a son, whom he made heir of all things and through whom he created the universe, who is the refulgence of his glory, the very imprint of his being, and who sustains all things by his mighty word. When he had accomplished purification from sins, he took his seat at the right hand of the Majesty on high, as far superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.

  18. How canonicity is decided • Orthodoxy – Is it conformed to Christ’s message? • Apostolicity – Is it traceable to the apostles? • Catholicity – Was it used consistently in the liturgy? (Universality) *All NT books can be traced to the apostles!

  19. Apocrypha • False writings

  20. Protestants use Hebrew (Palestinian canon) • Developed by Jews at Council of Jamnia in 90AD Problem: Why let people who deny the divinity of Christ determine the canon?
