Preserved by hundreds of ancient manuscripts spanning a dozen ancient languages and ancient Christian cultures, the Bible has a complex history of transmission, transcription, and translation. Omitted verses in ancient or modern translations (such as Mark 16:9–20 and John 7:53–8:11) leaves many Christians wondering about the reliability of modern Bible translations or the canonicity of Scripture. With the Textual Variants Collection, studying the transmission of each and every verse of the Bible becomes much, much easier. With your Logos 6 Textual Variants feature, you’ll be able to see how each verse was preserved and translated throughout the centuries, whether through Egypt in the Coptic tradition or by Rome in the Latin translations.
Become equipped to explain the history of Bible transmission and preservation, and gain insights to the treatment of the Bible text in early Jewish and Christian cultures. The Textual Variants Collection pulls the original-language texts from numerous commentaries and codices, allowing users to view overviews and commentary on missing or extraneous passages, and compare primary texts with modern translations.
