This is supported by Alexander (2006) when he says that the word canon signifies a rule and it was used by Christian Fathers to designate the inspired scriptures. http://www.foundationsforfreedom.net/Topics/Bible/Bible_Canonization.html defines canonisation as the process by which the community of God's people accept certain scriptures as divinely inspired and authoritative. According to https://www.thefree dictionary.com/canonization canonisation is to include in the biblical canon, to approve as within canon law or to treat as sacred. Considering the above definitions I can define canonisation as a process by which the Christian community determine whether writings are inspired by God so as to consider those scriptures sacred and to include them in the biblical canon. When a book conforms to the canon or passes the test of authenticity it becomes a canonical book.

Inclusion by John Of Material Not Found In the Synoptic The gospel of John also includes a substantial amount of content which is not found in the synoptic gospel.

Christianity explains salvation as redemption by God’s grace through faith from unrighteousness and sins to Cleanliness, also known as Salvation. The Bible explores salvation in different perspectives including reconciliation, redemption, ransom, forgiveness, and justification. Even though the Bible is a unitary book, the new and the old testaments present salvation in different aspects. However, the different aspects are complementary. In fact, the Old Testament presents many prophesies about salvation that was fulfilled in the New Testament (Kärkkäinen 87).

In regards to the psychological guidelines, I am compliant with the rules and regulations and ask the Holy Spirit for assistance if needed. Thus, this is how I find balance within theological wisdom, psychological guidelines, and my personal belief system. I learned that theological wisdom is gained from God, the Almighty and it is depicted as an aspect of God.
This indicates Paul 's receiving of direct revelation from the Lord Jesus concerning the institution of the Lord 's Supper service since Jesus himself is the ultimate source of the tradition.

Paul’s pneumatology found in his writings has been a matter of interest in recent New Testament scholarship. Gordon Fee has been a great contributor in this area and in Paul, the Spirit and the People of God he outlines the various elements found in Pauline pneumatology giving us greater insight into this subject. In this paper I will highlight some of these elements that are unique to Paul and are not found in the Synoptic Gospels and Acts. The first distinctive of Pauline pneumatology is the way he sees the Spirit as God’s personal presence. For Paul, the coming of the Spirit meant that God had fulfilled the promises He had made to Jeremiah and Ezekiel when He said, ‘I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel’ (Jer.
Abstract Within Integrative Approaches to Psychology and Christianity, Entwistle inquires if psychology and theology can be unified. Entwistle suggest a sufficient technique of integration albeit the Allies model, and this paper will outline the strengths and restraints of this model as well as how Methods of Knowing and the Two Book Concept further discover the effectiveness of the model. The justification of this paper is to instruct its reader on different subjects of the Allies model concerning the integration of theology and psychology.

N. Darby, an earnest Christian lawyer, who had most to do with the development with that type of futurism, commonly called dispensationalism; dispensationalism is an evangelical, futurist, Biblical interpretation that understands God to have related to human beings in different ways under different Biblical covenants in a series of "dispensations," or periods in history. As a system, dispensationalism is expounded in the writings of John Nelson Darby (1800–82) and the Plymouth Brethren movement, and propagated through works such as Cyrus Scofield's Scofield Reference Bible. The theology of dispensationalism consists of a distinctive eschatological end times perspective, as all dispensationalists hold to premillennialism and most hold to a pretribulation

Ellen Gerstner Professor Pruett-Davis Religion 103-14 25 September 2015 In Reading the Bible Again for the First Time, Borg reveals both the human and divine aspects of the Bible. Without biases, Borg comes to the logical conclusion that the Bible is a human product and the reasons for this will be addressed below. My preconceived belief that the Bible is both human and divine has been changed through Borg 's compelling argument, which states that it is necessary to see the Bible as either thoroughly human or divine. Before coming to the conclusion that the Bible is thoroughly human, Borg points out the opposing side and how its argument can be disproven. First, Borg references the creation narrative as a divine product.
