      Hi Mitch:

      There is an excellent and readable volume recently published by Craig D. Allert that very carefully discusses this very question (as well as other issues regarding canon formation and biblical authority etc). It is entitled "A High View of Scripture?" and is published by Baker 2007. Well worth the read!

      Subject: [textualcriticism] Canon and Scripture

      Why do some writers make a distinction between documents that are canonical and documents that are scripture? What is the difference between a document that is scripture and one that is canonical? Some seem to insist that a book deemed 'canonical' has to appear in a WRITTEN list of sacred Christian texts.

      Peter said Paul's letters were 'scripture.' Could I not just call them 'canonical epistles'?
