The early Church Fathers relied upon the Holy Bible. The Canon was not defined until the Council of Trent, in the West. Carthage made an attempt in the 390s, but that was a local and not an ecumenical council. John of Damascus in the 8th century lists the Canon of twenty-two books (Exposition of the Orthodox Faith: Book 4, chapter 17), which the King James Version and Luther Bible use. The Bible was not compiled by the Catholic Church, but was written to the Catholic Church by God, via the apostles and their close associates. Please be careful to note the way Paul opens nearly all his letters: "Paul, an Apostle of Jesus Christ, to the Church of God which is sojourning at Corinth" is a good example. He never said that he was writing for the Church, as a messenger of the Church, or as the Church. The Apostles viewed their declarations as being directed to the Church. This certainly destroys the notion that "The Church" itself made the Bible; rather, the Church accepted those epistles of Paul and the others which were ancient and authentic. It utterly subjugated itself to scripture. The O.P. contains quotes which make no sense if the pre-A.D. 400 Fathers didn't know what the Bible was. How could they demand fidelity to scripture that didn't exist? Chrysostom and Augustine, at various times, say "get yourselves a bible". They were preaching before the canon was supposedly finalised. Furthermore, twelve Fathers are for a Hebrew-only canon, not the Septuagint canon. There is tremendous unity among those great ancients.
