Wallace responds to three basic challenges by Bart Ehrman: the "black hole"; the quality of the copies; the effect of Constantine on the manuscripts.​

Dan Wallace Session 3


1. Ehrman on the “black hole”

“Not only do we not have the originals, we don’t have the first copies of the original, we don’t even have copies of the copies, or copies of the copies of the copies of the originals.” How do you respond?

2. Ehrman on quality of copies

Ehrman says the manuscripts before Constantine were done by careless, unprofessional copyists as seen in their handwriting. Is this true?

3. Constantine

Did Constantine have any effect on the Greek text?
