    There were also New Testament texts that were disputed. There were nearly two dozen Gospels and dozens of books and letters which were being sent from church to church. Some apocryphal books, such as the Shepherd of Hermas, and the Didache (The Teaching of the Twelve Apostles) were considered to be orthodox but not inspired. The New Testament Canon (the authoritative collection of books) was formed over a period of sorting and sifting overseen by the Holy Spirit that was essentially completed by c. AD The fifth-century church councils finally settled the matter. I heard something like this as a young seminarian. I suspect you’ve heard something similar.
