…some bad beats.
What’s interesting about this is that it essentially reverses the role of scripture during the period of canonization. Scripture was used to teach the faith of the church, a faith one could locate in various forms of the Rule of Faith.
I intend to agree with this statement. Because I do not feel like writing much, I’ve made a video.
Scripture does not come first — therefore, no solo/sola scriptura. We can settle for prima scriptura, however. Why? Because Tradition creates the Canon by authorizing it. Note, literary works existed before and after Tradition, often in conflict with Tradition. The canon – the set of books considered authoritative – is authorized by the Tradition shaped and shaping those literary works. Later, the canon becomes to shape tradition.
I know… right?
