Dear Michael,
I'm not sure that that canonization is an acceptable topic for this
list, and I certainly do not want a lengthy discussion of it, but I
just wanted to add a note here.
I believe Leiman (_Canonization of the Hebrew Scripture_) has shown that
the Hebrew Scriptures were firmly established long before the writing of
2 Tim. The only uncertainty was the *order* of the books.
