MAY 20

With today’s devotion we will take up the very important subject of the biblical canon. The books that makeup our Bible are called the “cannon of Scripture.” The word “canon” comes from a Greek word that was used to signify a “measuring rod” or “standard.” Therefore, the “canonical books,” the books that make up our Bible, are simply those that have “measured up” as divinely inspired. It is these books alone that are to serve as the Christian’s standard for faith and practice.
