More From Daniel Wallace On The Recent Manuscript Discoveries

Greg Koukl just interviewed Daniel Wallace. Part of the interview was about the recent New Testament manuscript discoveries.

Though these New Testament manuscripts are significant evidence for the New Testament text, it should be noted that we have a lot of evidence other than manuscripts. For example, many ancient Christian and non-Christian sources commented on the state of the text. Their comments give us information about the text independent of the manuscripts we possess. There are other non-manuscript lines of evidence as well. For those interested in more information about the textual transmission of the New Testament, see our index of posts on the subject here. Also see my section of chapter 4 in The End Of Infidelity, where I discuss some of the reasons why we can discern the state of the text of the New Testament prior to our earliest manuscripts.
