Hippo and Carthage were both in Africa. Both Councils approved the Council of Rome's Canon.<quoted text>
I think you're absolutely funny buddy. The Eastern Church and Aramaic African Church received the same texts the CC voted on 300 years later and you say the CC is the source of the text because your Church approved of it by voting for it? For almost 300 years others had a Bible before you, but you deny theirs because yours didn't vote on theirs?:-)
Don't blame 'low end prots', blame your high-minded profs for telling you an abject lie.
The Canon approved by the third Synod of Carthage (397 CE)
The first council that accepted the present New Testament canon was the Synod of Hippo Regius in North Africa (393 CE); however, the acts of the council are lost. A brief summary of the acts was read at and accepted by the third Synod of Carthage.
Canon 24. Besides the canonical Scriptures, nothing shall be read in church under the name of divine Scriptures. Moreover, the canonical Scriptures are these:[then follows a list of Old Testament books]. The [books of the] New Testament: the Gospels, four books; the Acts of the Apostles, one book; the Epistles of Paul, thirteen; of the same to the Hebrews; one Epistle; of Peter, two; of John, apostle, three; of James, one; of Jude, one; the Revelation of John. Concerning the confirmation of this canon, the transmarine Church shall be consulted. On the anniversaries of martyrs, their acts shall also be read.
