In response to many questions and comments regarding Roger Beckwith’s book, The Old Testament Canon of the New Testament Church, T. Michael Law has offered some thoughts. While many scholars prize Beckwith’s book as the definitive work on the Canon of the Hebrew Bible, Law states that the book is replete with errors both in Beckwith’s interpretation of the evidence, as well as his methodology. Law says that “you don’t need Jesus reading BHS for your faith to survive.”
This is sure to keep the conversation going. I highly recommend reading Law’s post (find it here). If anyone cares to respond to Law, let me know so I can make sure to post a link.
