I just finished listening to these wonderful lectures on the New Testament canon of Scripture and would recommend them to anyone. The middle lectures were particularly fantastic. If you think that questions regarding the canon basically consist of, “how do we know that we have the right books of the Bible?” or “who decided on the canon?” then you’ll be surprised by the depth of insight that Kruger brings the topic.

From Adam’s fall, mankind has longed to be restored to the relationship with the LORD that he experienced in the garden. Due to this central desire, it doesn’t seem far-fetched to see future temples as designed to reflect the Garden of Eden, the fall, and the desire for a restoration to the garden paradise.
