Why we can trust the New Testament

Here is a excellent post on the authenticity of the Bible. One of the items Mel deals with is Biblical inerrancy. Since we don’t have any of the original books of the Bible, and we have copy errors, the discussion of the implications of that problem makes post worth reading.

As Dr. Daniel B. Wallace says, one thing we need to do when talking about the historicity of the New Testament is avoid two extremes: radical skepticism on the one end and absolute certainty on the other.

This is a continuation of my series on Christian apologetics. In these posts I’m making a systematic argument for

  1. There is. in my opinin, a very fine line between two wordd, faith and trust.

    Same as betwen the words wisdom and folly.

    Both are choices we make in life if we make if we choose to listen to both sides before we act.

    Which is wise or foolish, you decide and you will benifit or suffer the consequences of you chioce.

  2. It is interesting that the Bible was not published until the 4th century and that the literature that was finally and carefully selected (in the 4th century) for the New Testament wasn’t written by its authors until years and years after they began preaching.

    That means that Christianity did not originate nor was it spread through scripture.

    Christianity was spread from person to person mainly by good works and personal ministry to the needs of a community.

    1. Good point! We don’t have to be a Biblical scholar or especially eloquent to bring some to Jesus Christ. We just have to lead a life that points to Him.

      I have a post somewhere that describes what you are calling the “publication” of the Bible. After he became emperor (conquered his rivals) Constantine called church leaders (or fathers) together to resolve a few doctrinal disputes. Constantine gave those church leaders the opportunity to gather all the books that make up the Bible together and have scribes make a bunch of copies. That was not exactly a publication as we think of it today.

      Throughout the centuries, even in Old Testament times, what church (or synagogue) fathers did was keep the doctrine (scripture) intact and teach doctrine so that new Christians (or Jews) could grow in faith by understanding something about the nature of our God and what He has done for us.
