The formation of the Jewish canon is not easily explained. This chapter selects important texts and issues to discuss and provides a focused textual and scholarly engagement on the issues. It closes in on three broad areas: the emergence of the canon; the various conceptions of authoritative scriptures; and authority and canon. Finally, the chapter offers some concluding thoughts.
