CPR: Textual Criticism

August 2, 2019

As a follow up to our podcast on English Bible translations, we discuss the topic of textual criticism in this episode. Textual criticism is the art of looking at ancient manuscripts with the goal of reconstructing the original text of a document. We have none of the original manuscripts of the Old or New Testament, but we do have close to 6000 copies of the originals. We will discuss what this means, why it is important, and how it relates to our English translations. Buckle up for this valuable discussion on textual criticism and the text of the Bible.
