Heidegger's Bible Handbook: Old Testament in General: Definition of the Canonical Books of the OT



1. The Canonical Books of the Old Testament are defined. The Canonical Books of the Old Testament are those upon which, as sacred tables, the Old Covenant or Testament itself, and the whole Economy of it as described by Moses and the Prophets, is contained.

In good Scholastic form, before getting into his treatment of the Canonical Books of the Old Testament, Heidegger first provides a definition for those books.



Compare his definition of the Canonical Books of the Old Testament with that of the Westminster Assembly for the whole Bible: Westminster Confession of Faith 1:2: ' Under the name of Holy Scripture, or the Word of God written, are now contained all the books of the Old and New Testament, which are these.... All which are given by inspiration of God to be the rule of faith and life.'
