    Ehrman s thesis in this book is that many of the textual variants that are found in the manuscripts of the New Testament are the result of intentional changes to the text on the part of the scribes who copied the texts He contends that the scribes made these changes to the text as a result of, and in response to, the various Christological disputes of the second and third centuries and he analyzes several variant readings with this contention in mind While I agree with Ehrman that the scribes Ehrman s thesis in this book is that many of the textual variants that are found in the manuscripts of the New Testament are the result of intentional changes to the text on the part of the scribes who copied the ...

    Read the book Revisiting the Corruption of the New Testament by Wallace It clearly refutes a lot of claims and exaggerations found within this book by Ehrman.

    It seems like a lot of folks either didn t know what they were getting into with this book or completely misunderstood the primary message First of all, unlike a lot of Ehrman s output, this is not intended for mass market appeal rather it issuited for serious study of the New Testament Second, the argument is not that every change in the early scriptures was done for purely int...

    Seriously flawed Was expecting a work of scholarship and got a lot of hot air The evidence is largely spurious, seriously limited in scope and the author draws conclusions from a lack of actual substance C.E Hill Who Chose the Gospels and others have basically had to put this work into the catego...

    Variations on the truth A very complex study of textual variations from the early centuries after Christ and possible motives Is what we re a d what was written Is our interpretation correct or are we led to believe a variation on the theme Mind boggling and to some degree, scary.

    Put on notice by the author that this book contained technical discussions, I was prepared for a difficult read In fact, the book was largely free of technical jargon I suppose my knowing a bit of Greek helped, but I can t imagine even not knowing Greek being an impediment for a reasonably dedicated reader Being put on guard by another reviewer that this book was seriously flawed, I read itclosely than perhaps I might have otherwise Armed with my 21st edition of Novum Testamentum Gra Put on notice by the author that this book contained technical discussions, I was prepared for a difficult read In fact, the book was largely free of technical jargon I suppose my knowing a bit of Greek helped, but I can t imagine even not knowing Greek being an impediment for a reasonably dedicated reader Being put on guard by another reviewer that this book was seriously flawed, I read itclosely than perhaps I might have otherwise Armed with my 21st edition of Novum Testamentum Graece and a reconstruction of the Greek Text used by the NIV translators, I put the seriously flawed claim to the test and could find no substance to it.Perhaps Christians who consider themselves heirs to orthodoxy believe by the title that this book is an attack on mod...

    A friend sent me a complementary copy of this as evidence for the intentional manipulation of early Christian manuscripts for the purpose of stamping out the numerous heresies that plagued the nascent church There s a run on sentence, phew, sorry Breath, in out The evidence is compelling, but it s not particularly disconcerting Regardless of what happened to 3rd 4th century copies of the Bible, our modern translations revert to older sources that are not tainted by these manipulations While A friend sent me a complementary copy of this as evidence for the intentional manipulation of early Christian manuscripts for the purpose of stamping out the numerous heresies that plagued the nascent church There s a run on sentence, phew, sorry Breath, in out The evidence is compelling, but it s not particularly disconcerting Regardless of what happened to 3rd 4...

    A very interesting look at the way in which battles over correct Christology shaped the text of the New Testament This is written primarily for scholars working in the same field of textual criticism, so it has the benefits drawbacks of being extremely meticulous, down to detailed discussions of New Testament Greek grammar Ehrman is, luckily, aware of this, and structures each chapter with ageneral opening and introduction, so that readers like myself can skimlightly over s A very interesting look at the way in which battles over correct Christology shaped the text of the New Testament This is written primarily for scholars working in the same field of textual criticism, so it has the benefits drawbacks of being extremely meticulous, down to detailed discussions of New Testament Greek grammar Ehrman is, luckily, aware of this, and structures each chapter with ageneral opening and introduction, so that readers like myself can skimlightly over some of discussions about sources while still getting the gist of the argument I was also pleased to see that Erhman bears in mind that, while the Christians whose version of Christology eventually triumphed framed themselves as the orthodox and those who differed as heretics, the so called heretics were of course framing themselves as correct and the orthodox as a heretical sect Each group had a particular view of Christ that they believed was correct, and Ehrman touches briefly on some of the chang...

    Ehrman lets you know up front that most of this book is written for Bible scholars He encourages the rest of us to read the introduction, read the beginnings and summary of each chapter, skimming as desired thru the meat of the chapters I tried to read it cover to cover, but after the first chapter I decided to take the author s advice and thus got a lotout of it.His thesis is that as orthodox scribes copied out new manuscripts of the Bible, they felt obliged to add, subtract, or tweak w Ehrman le...

    There were some parts of this book that I thought were great and other parts that were long and the arguments seemed like kind of a stretch The parts of this book that I really like talk about the different things that different groups of early Christians believed Something we don t hear about very much in church are that early followers had some very different ideas about things that what has become mainstream today The parts of the book that I didn t enjoy as much were the parts where he ar There were some parts of this book that I thought were great and other parts that were long and the arguments seemed like kind of a stretch The parts of this book that I really like talk about the different things that different groups of earl...
