    (and I say friend, I should have said acquaintance in this case, although we do have friends in common and we've met on several occasions) a friend of a friend is a pastor, schooled at Bob Jones (!) and Harvard Law. This page has a large collection of his writing on the subject. I read through a lot of them when his church put a billboard campaign up in our town. Before that, I'd heard others talk about such evidence but Pastor Jeff's was the first time I'd seen chapter and verse quoted and studied in depth. Again, makes me no never mind but definitely points up the fluid nature of the transcripts.

    Why do you keep putting "Greek texts" in quotations? What are you trying to say by doing that?

    •  Because there are no "greek texts"... (0+ / 0-)

      ... in the sense that so-called biblical scholars try to present them.

      There are no original documents that people go back to to translate into better and better bibles.

      There simply is no such thing.  But it sounds good, so they say it.
