The focus of textual criticism is analyzing the history and transmission of a text. With the wealth of New Testament manuscripts that have been preserved from antiquity, scholars have been able to reconstruct for us a trustworthy and reliable text of the New Testament we can trust and use in our daily studies.
Hermann von Soden’s Die Schriften des Neuen Testaments, originally published in four volumes from 1902–13, is an important contribution to the study and history of the New Testament text. Von Soden introduced a new theory of classifying manuscripts, thus making his critical edition of the Greek text a essential tool for the student of the New Testament.
