Canon Comparison Interactive


The original Greek word for “canon” referred to a measuring rod—something that remained unaltered and could be used as a standard. In the early Church, the term “canon” came to be used as a reference to the list of inspired books that make up Holy Scripture. Interestingly, different Christian traditions disagree about the order and number of the canon of Scripture, and what books should and should not be included.
