How does digitization preserve the New Testament?
One of the most important results of digitizing New Testament manuscripts is the preservation of the text and the manuscripts that contain it. How does that happen? Our New Testament textual criticism prof just so happens to have twenty years of experience digitizing Greek New Testament manuscripts. Dr. Wallace explains how digitization protects physical artifacts and preserves images of manuscripts for future generations who will have less access to the physical artifact because manuscripts inevitably decay. Furthermore, excellent archival images provide New Testament textual critics with vital data for their work to ensure the most accurate wording of the New Testament text. The manuscripts are preserved today and for the future, and the text is preserved as a reliable reflection of what the apostles and close followers of Jesus wrote centuries ago.
