The succeed in of this quantity hence is going past that of so much feminist stories of Revelation, which regularly specialize in the feminine imagery: the Thyatiran prophet referred to as 'Jezebel', the 'Woman Clothed with the Sun', the 'Whore of Babylon', and the 'Bride'/the 'Heavenly Jerusalem'. The symbols of Revelation stay open and interpetations proceed. a few readers will refuse to celebrate on the dismemberment of the Woman-who-is-Babylon; they're going to withstand the (masochistic? infantile?) self-abasement sooner than this imperial Deity who ideas through patriarchal domination.

Ett sätt på vilket kyrkan har definierat kanon och dess gränser är de allmänt vedertagna ”kriterierna för kanonicitet” som har använts för att bestyrka de böcker som utgör det Nya Testamentet:
1. Apostolic starting place — attributed to and established upon the preaching/teaching of the first-generation apostles (or their shut companions).
2. common attractiveness — said via all significant Christian groups within the historic global (by the top of the 4th century) in addition to authorized canon via Jewish specialists (for the previous Testament).
3. Liturgical Use — learn publicly whilst early Christian groups collected for the Lord's Supper (their weekly worship services).
4. constant Message — containing a theological outlook just like or complementary to different accredited Christian writings.
Utifrån dessa kriterier hade många tidiga kristna förhållandevis klart för sig vilka texter som guy räknade som auktoritativa och normerande för den kristna tron och kyrkan i stort. De utgjordes av evangelier och brev som tillräknades ett stort värde av hela den kristna kyrkan.
Förutom Athaniasius påskbrev så har olika kyrkomöten, speciellt kyrkomötet i Nicea, varit viktiga milstolpar i kyrkans fastställande av vad den kristna tron innebar och vilka skrifter som skullefogas till(intetas bortfrån) Skriften. Det fanns hursomhelst fortsatt skilda meningar främst mellan de östliga och västliga delarna av kyrkan om huruvida det fanns andra texter som skulle räknas som auktoritativa. Ett exempel på en bok som det rådde stor oenighet var Johannes Uppenbarelse och om denna bok var kanonisk eller inte.
