Evidence of Manuscripts.

The four gospels and the other gospels compared.

A popular idea is that the Bible has been corrupted, either by deliberate falsification or simply lost through passage of time. Such ideas are promoted in the British media.

On our DVDs Dr Jongkind explains what New Testament manuscripts are and compares the manuscripts we have of the New Testament with what we have for other ancient writings.

There is little evidence for deliberate change within New Testament manuscripts. The scribes of the New Testament manuscripts would not have been good conspirators because they were interested in copying, not in changing.
