Christian Tractatus

(Text as at 12/08/2007 10:17:46)

The precise contents of the Canon of Scripture are not taken as being critical to the current enquiry.

  1. With respect to expanding the Cannon, the Deuterocanonical portions are confined to the Old Testament and are of limited doctrinal significance. The apocrypha and pseudepigrapha of both Testaments either do not claim the authority of the Canonical Scriptures or contain obviously fallacious statements that negate the authority claimed.
  2. In both Testaments, the books occasionally rejected from the Canon similarly tend to be doctrinally marginal or obscure.
