About this Class
Dr. Daniel Wallace is one of the world's leading textual critics. His ministry, the Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts (CSNTM.org) is currently the most prolific organization for discovering, photographing, and cataloging ancient Greek manuscripts of the New Testament. In this class, he discusses the issues of textual variants, how ancient manuscripts were made, the types of errors that we can see in the manuscripts, the issue of the Textus Receptus and its role in the King James translation of the Bible, the historic work of Westcott and Hort, and ends with discussions of the most famous textual problems.
Dr. Wallace gives a three hour summary of this class in our Academy program. The first of the lectures is here.
Please visit Dr. Wallace's ministry, Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts and support them financially. His book on the subject should be out in a few months.
Are there people out there who can help us?
We need the following for each of Dr. Wallace's lectures:
- Two sentence summary of each lecture
- A detailed outline
If you can, please contact us here.
Much more important than the total number of textual variants is the nature of the variants. This lecture discusses how textual critics classify variants as meaningful and/or viable, and the number of variants that fall into each category.
