Reliable: Why The Original Text Matters

Sep 11, 2022    Abidan Shah, PhD

The Bible alone and in its entirety is given by inspiration of God. In other words, when the Bible speaks, God speaks, and since God cannot err, the Bible does not err. Unfortunately, the autographs are no longer available, but the text is well preserved in the thousands of copies. As much as 96% of the NT text is totally reliable; determining the rest of the original text is a task of utmost importance. Nonetheless, we can with total confidence hold this book up and proclaim without any hesitation that we are holding in our hands the inerrant, inspired, authoritative, sufficient, necessary, and clear Word of God.
