Does the Bible have errors? (Part 1)

In the past two blogs we’ve established that the Bible is an extremely reliable document, without parallel in ancient literature, passing all bibliographical tests.

Has the New Testament been reliably copied?

What about the reliability of the New Testament?  The degree of accuracy of the New Testament exceeds 99%, which is greater than that of any other book from the ancient world.  And what is astounding is the strength of the argument when comparing it to other ancient writings.

God’s Law–moral goal posts

Laws are like goal posts–they show us when we miss.  If we keep the law, it is like a field goal attempt that goes through the uprights.  On the other hand, if we break the law, it is like a kick that is either wide left, wide right, or short.  The Bible is full of [&hellip
