This video is part 3A in my series on Holy Scripture. In this video, I begin discussing the history of the New Testament and the process by which the Holy Spirit guided the Church to canonize our current 27 books. This video discusses the criteria by which candidates for Holy Scripture were judged, the three major classifications of candidates for Holy Scripture, and the opinions of various early Fathers, in chronological order, on what was and wasn't Holy Scripture.
By the far the best website I've seen on the development of the New Testament canon: http://www.ntcanon.org/
An excellent table of which Fathers (and heretics) accepted which books: http://www.ntcanon.org/table.shtml
Also included on this website is a table with more information about the books which were candidates for Holy Scripture in the early Church but are not included in our current New Testament, including links to websites where you can read the texts: http://www.ntcanon.org/writings.shtml
To read the writings of Sts. Clement of Rome, Ignatius of Antioch, Polycarp of Smyrna, Justin the Philosopher, Irenaeus and more Apostolic Fathers, visit: http://www.ccel.org/ccel/schaff/anf01...
To read the writings of St. Clement of Alexandria, visit: http://www.ccel.org/ccel/schaff/anf02...
To read the Muratorian Fragment, an anonymous early list of canonical New Testament books, visit: http://www.bible-researcher.com/murat...
If you're interested in this topic, I highly suggest that you pick up a copy of Bruce Metzger's "The Canon of the New Testament," by far the best modern scholarly work on the development of the New Testament canon.
