Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.From Wikipedia (so it MUST be right! Right?) In his Easter letter of 367, Athanasius, Bishop of Alexandria, (Egypt) gave a list of the books that would become the twenty-seven-book NT canon, and he used the word "canonized" (Greek: κανονιζόμενα kanonizomena) in regards to them. The first council that accepted the present canon of the New Testament may have been the Synod of Hippo Regius in North Africa (393). A brief summary of the acts was read at and accepted by the Councils of Carthage in 397 and 419. (North Africa) These councils were under the authority of St. Augustine, (Bishop if Hippo, North Africa) who regarded the canon as already closed. iakov the fool (beaucoup dien cai dau) DISCLAIMER: By reading the words posted above, you have made a free will choice to expose yourself to the rantings of iakov the fool.
