First Century Oecumenical Censorship?
Patristic theology was traditionally taught in Catholic, Anglican and Orthodox seminaries. The codification of the NT was NEVER intended to exclude those other works of the Fathers of the Church altogether. The undivided Church never foresaw a time when Word would supplant the Sacraments/Mysterion and not complement them.
This, and the addition of the Deuterocanonical Books of the OT, shows us that 72 as opposed to 66, Christianity is not a faith system that you can reduce to twenty-five words or less.
The contextual Biblical scholar who uses all the tools at his command, rather than the absolute "literalist" will, IMHO, save the Faith from derision or worse.
