Canonicity and the Apostolic Fathers

In this lesson, Pastor Dave Capoccia briefly discusses the issue of canonicity, how the Christian church came to recognize which books belonged in the Bible and which books did not. Pastor Dave then introduces several apostolic fathers, those church leaders who came right after the apostles and some of whom were even taught directly by the apostles. In meeting these men and learning about their legacies, we Christians can better understand origins, receive encouragement, and take warning.
