BIBLE, THE, IV CANONICITY. IV. Literary Growth and Origin-Canonicity. Thus far the books of the Old Testament and New Testament have been taken simply as given, and no attempt has been made to inquire how or when they were written or compiled, or how they came to acquire the dignity and authority implied in their reception into a sacred canon. Canonicity means that a book belongs in the Bible. Inspiration is what the author had when a book of the Bible was written.

The books admitted to the canon of Scripture were inspired by God. There were, however, many false books that claimed inspiration. How did the people judge between the true and the false? The Bible does not give any set of criteria that were used to determine which books were to be considered Scripture. We are not told how the determination was. A biblical canon or canon of scripture is a set of texts (or "books") which a particular religious community regards as authoritative English word "canon" comes from the Greek κανών, meaning "rule" or "measuring stick".Christians became the first to use the term in reference to scripture, but Eugene Ulrich regards the idea as Jewish.

Inspiration Determines Canonicity The key to canonicity is inspiration. As Paul wrote to his younger protégé Timothy, “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2.

[R Laird Harris] -- Somewhat strangely, it seems to the author, the question of inspiration is often considered without giving proper attention to the question of canonicity.A book is not inspired because men made it canonical; it is canonical because God inspired it.

Thus, canonicity is determined by inspiration. Canonicity is determined by God and discovered by man. This is true of both Old Testament and New Testament Scriptures. False books and false writings were not scarce in the first century.
