Series on Canon at River Oaks Church

unnamedMy wife and I had the joy of joining River Oaks Church (PCA)* today, and I have the double joy of teaching a 8-part series on OT and NT canon in adult Sunday school.

I will be posting the handouts, audio recordings, and videos below.

5/8 What is Scripture, and why does it matter? PDF MP3 Video
5/15 How did the OT come about, and do we have the right OT books? PDF MP3 Video
5/22 How do we know we have the right words of those OT books? PDF MP3 Video
5/29 How did the NT come about? PDF MP3  —
6/5 Do we have the right NT books? PDF MP3  —
6/19 How do we know we have the right words of those NT books? PDF MP3
6/26 Why do we not accept all these other books? PDF MP3** Video
7/3 Wrap-up and Q&A PDF

 

____________________

* It is a particular delight to be joining ROC, because the senior pastor, David Camera, discipled me for about a year a decade ago when my wife and I were newly married and members of Briarwood Presbyterian Church in Birmingham, AL. David was a new associate pastor at Briarwood at the time. It’s a privilege to be coming full circle to sit under his teaching again, now in Florida.

** In the audio of this lesson I made a mistake regarding the Dead Sea Scrolls. The scroll that *possibly* mentions a “killed/slain” Messiah is not 4Q452 but 4Q285.
