God’s Canon – New! -
by Steve Hays
Traditionally, the case for the Protestant canon has emphasized external lines of evidence (e.g. Josephus, church fathers), as well as the witness of the Spirit. And that remains a valid line of evidence.
More recently, however, many scholars have been giving close attention to the intertextuality of Scripture as well as the paratextuality of the canon. That’s a neglected line of internal evidence for the canon of Scripture. And it dovetails with the self-witness of Scripture.
The chapters in this book emphasize the self-attestation of Scripture to the canon of Scripture via intratextual, intertextual, and paratextual lines of evidence. The Bible is far more self-contained and self-referential than first meets the eye.
To the degree that the canon of Scripture is grounded in the self-witness of Scripture, we have not only a canon of infallible books, but an infallible canon–where one infallible book implicitly bears witness to another (or other) infallible book(s), through a tapestry of allusions, foreshadowings, and other types of cross-attestation.
