RTS Atlanta is pleased to host "The Canonization of the New Testament: A Special Presentation by Dr. Michael Kruger" on Saturday, February 23rd from 9am to 12:30pm
January 3, 2013
While the 27 books in the New Testament were penned by 9 different men, we know the One who ultimately authored the Bible, God Himself, is trustworthy not only because He says so, but because He has demonstrated His faithfulness to us throughout the millennia and over specific periods of time. One such period is the development of the New Testament canon.
The Atlanta campus of Reformed Theological Seminary, the C.S. Lewis Institute, and the Areopagus are pleased to host Dr. Michael Kruger, President and Professor of New Testament at RTS Charlotte, at the RTS Atlanta campus on Saturday, February 23rd from 9:00am until 12:30pm. Dr. Kruger, author of Canon Revisited: Establishing the Origins and Authority of the New Testament Books (Crossway, 2012) and The Early Text of the New Testament (Oxford, 2012) will discuss three questions:
1) Why did the early church develop a canon of Scripture?
2) When were the writings of the New Testament first regarded as Scripture?
3) Were there other books that were considered for inclusion in the Christian canon of Scripture?
Dr. Kruger will also be available for a session of Q&A toward the conclusion of the presentation.
This special event is open to the community and on-site registration begins at RTS Atlanta at 8:30am on Saturday, February 23rd. There is a $20 registration fee and pre-registration is recommended through the C.S. Lewis Institute website here. For more information you may also view the event flyer at your convenience.
