Did Jesus Really Rise From The Dead?
April 20, 2014 Pastor: John Fonville
“No fundamental doctrine of the Christian faith rests on a disputed reading. . . . It cannot be too strongly asserted that in substance the text of the Bible is certain: Especially is this the case with the New Testament. The number of manuscripts of the New Testament, of early translations from it, and of quotations from it in the oldest writers of the Church, is so large that it is practically certain that the true reading of every doubtful passage is preserved in some one or other of these ancient authorities. This can be said of no other ancient book in the world.”
Sir Frederic Kenyon who is one of the great authorities in the field of New Testament textual criticism and a distinguished historian and archeologist and director of the British Museum.
