What do you think about this Catholic article? http://matt1618.freeyellow.com/deut.html It shows that although the Fathers generally excluded most of the deuterocanonicals from their canon, they still considered them as Scripture and used them to prove doctrine. Except for St. Jerome that is, who seems to be either inconsistent when he calls the deuterocanonicals Scripture and yet when he lists the canon he excludes the deuterocanonicals and says we can't use them to prove doctrine, or we are just misunderstanding him.Asteriktos said:Sometimes they did, and sometimes they didn't. Also, sometimes they quotes something from memory and called it Scripture even though they technically excluded it from their Bible canon.Nicene said:Would they quote them as authoritatively as they might other books? Those quotes that specifically imply these are definietly scripture would be of teh most use, when discussing with protestants primarily.
