“Has the New Testament text been corrupted?”
In the latest installment of the Ask the Prof series, Dr. Wallace, our New Testament textual criticism professor, answers the question, “Has the New Testament been corrupted?” He begins by addressing what “corruption” means. All the New Testament manuscripts differ from one another and contain errors from the copying process, which explains one sense of corruption. We must, therefore, consider the nature of the variants to know how badly the text has been corrupted. Today, our TC prof explains the nature of different variants, how they affect our understanding of the text, and whether or not corruption has skewed the text too much.
