NT308 The Reliability of New Testament Manuscripts (Videos)

Craig A. Evans

| Lexham Press | 2014

Details

In this course, distinguished scholar Dr. Craig A. Evans answers a question commonly asked about the New Testament—can we trust the manuscripts? Because the answer has serious consequences, Dr. Evans clearly outlines the history of these important documents. He discusses the quality, quantity, and age of the manuscripts and how these elements compare to nonbiblical ancient texts. Numerous text examples as well as descriptions of the practices of ancient writers and scribes also contribute to his argument for reliable manuscripts.
