The 1689 on Scripture (1.2-5)

Jimmy and Joe jump back into the 1689 Confession and are talking through Chapter 1 paragraphs 2 through 5. Why do we only have 66 books of the bible and exclude the Apocrypha? Concerning those 66 books that make up Scripture, how do we know they are of divine origin?

Dig deeper into the issues:

The Apocrypha: Is it Scripture?
Reasons why the Apocrypha does not belong in the Bible
