MAY THE LORD JEHOVAH BLESS YOU TODAY.
THIS IS A VERY GOOD OVERVIEW OF HOW OUR BIBLE CAME TO US.
TO VIEW EASIER, SET THE PAGES TO THUMBNAIL, AND SCROLL DOWN THE RIGHT BAR.
PAGES 43 TO 45 GIVE A GOOD OVERVIEW OF MS AUTHENTICITY. NOTE PAGES 44 AND 45 TO SEE HOW ERRORS ARE MADE BY SCRIBES.
PAGES 53 AND 54 GIVE DETAILS OF THE OLDEST BIBLE, AD 130.
PAGE 62 LISTS THE EARLY CHRISTIAN WRITERS FROM AD 150 TO AD 340.
PAGE 67 SHOWS HOW THE MSS WERE CONSISTANTLY DESTROYED.
PAGE 69 SHOWS HOW THE VOWELS WERE ADDED LATER, EX. "GRN" COULD BE GREEN, GRAIN, GROIN, GROAN, ETC.
PAGE 118 DETAILS THE 1546 ROMAN COUNCIL OF TRENT. NOTE "2 MACCABEES, FIRST AND SECOND" WERE LISTED AFTER MALACHI.
THANK YOU. PASTOR TOM. 10/10/2009.
