When Did the New Testament Become Scripture?

Many modern scholars have settled on c. AD 200 as the earliest period at which the New Testament writings were considered Scripture. Irenaeus has been called the “principal architect” of the canon, while another scholar has said Irenaeus “essentially created the core of the New Testament canon of Holy Scripture.” But a fresh examination of the evidence suggests that the New Testament writings were considered Scripture far earlier than Irenaeus….

But until then, we can whet our appetite with several essays in the recently published The Greek Verb Revisited. In this….

Redefining Verbal Aspect: Challenging the Reigning Paradigm

In The Greek Verb Revisited, one author took on a reigning paradigm in Koine Greek studies: how we define verbal aspect. It is widely understood (and I have understood it myself) as the subjective representation of an event. That means the author’s choice of tense-form determined how they were attempting to portray the event, not how the event actually happened in reality….

2,000 Years of Progress with the Gospel

Today there are incredible websites with up-to-date statistics on world missions, who has been reached, who hasn’t, and what work is being doing. The Joshua Project is one of the best websites, and I had time to peruse it this week. They also provide the widget that I now embedded in the sidebar, which highlights an unreached people group each day. Please pray for them as they came across your screen…
