How did twenty-seven ancient Christian documents come together as the New Testament? How were they recognised, read and bound together as one half of the Christian Bible? Beginning with Jesus and the documents which arose from the apostolic testimony to him in the first century, this booklet traces how Paul's letters and the four gospels came to be grouped together and how the basic shape and contents of the New Testament emerged by the end of the second century.
