Did u know?

Did u know that Athanasius of Alexandria (367) gave us the earliest list of the New Testament books that is exactly like our present New Testament? He provided this list in a festal letter to the churches. As he put it:
“Again it is not tedious to speak of the books of the New Testament. These are the four gospels, according to Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Afterwards, the Acts of the Apostles and Epistles, (seven), viz of James, one; of peter, two; of John, three; after these, one of Jude. In addition there are fourteen Epistles of Paul, written in this order. The first to the Romans; then two to the Corinthians; after these, to the Galatians; next, to the Ephesians; then to the Philippians; then to the Colossians; after these two the Thessalonians, and that to the Hebrews; and again, two to Timothy; one to Titus, and lastly, that to Philemon. And besides, the Revelation of John.” ( Athanasius, L 552)
