Kruger on the Earliest Canon List

Larry Hurtado has a nice summary of an argument from Michael Kruger, arguing that Origen's list of books that belong in the NT canon is authentic. They also accept the Muratorian Canon as authentic from the 200s.

The case seems very well argued and suggests that Origen had three lists (like Eusebius): 1) NT books that are widely accepted , 2) books not widely accepted, and 3) books that seem to have mixed content.
