TOPICS AT TWELVE – A TWO-PART SERIES ON THE FORMATION OF THE BIBLE
Why does our Old Testament end with Malachi, when the Jewish Bible ends with 2 Chronicles? Why does the Roman Catholic Bible have more books than in our Pew Bible? Why is Matthew the first book in the New Testament when Mark was written before Matthew and all the letters of Paul were written before Matthew? Why do some Bibles have a verse in the text and other Bibles place that verse in a footnote. Bring your questions large and small to a two-part series starting today on the Formation of the Canon. In Hoffman Hall Rev. Dr. Jeffrey Siker, Loyola Marymount University, will speak on the formation of the Old Testament on January 11 and on the formation of the New Testament on January 18. Note that Lunch will not be offered, allowing the 60 minute classes to begin and end in a more timely fashion.
