How Did We Get The Bible? – John Meade

Home » How Did We Get The Bible? – John Meade

Dr. Arnold interviews Dr. Meade about the origin of the Bible and the criteria for canonicity.

Topics of conversation include:

  • Where do we get the terms Bible and Canon, and what do we mean by them?
  • How did the church decide which books belonged in the Canon?
  • Which books were disputed by the early church, and why?
  • Why is the Catholic Bible different from the Protestant Bible?

Dr. John Meade is associate professor of Old Testament at Phoenix Seminary. He is the co-director of the Text and Canon Institute, as well as the author of The Biblical Canon Lists from Early Christianity (Oxford University Press, 2018). Dr. Meade holds a PhD from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
