Greek Scholar Daniel Wallace said, “When the King James was done, it was especially based on about a half of a dozen manuscripts. The earliest of which was a thousand years after the New Testament was written. Today we have approximately 1000 times as many manuscripts that we know exist. And our earliest ones go all the way back to the 2nd century. …Within decades of when the New Testament was written.” Why is it significant that we have manuscripts that go back to within decades after the New Testament was written?

      It is significant that we have manuscripts that go back within decades after the New Testament because not everybody knows that and I didn’t know that either until learning from this course today.

      The Truth, just as God spoke it, does not change – ever, and that is what makes it Truth now and for all eternity. As for me and my house, if it does not totally agree with Scripture it is false and I have absolutely no use for it. I also pray for discernment every day and give praise to the Lord for my steadfast love of His Word.

      As more manuscripts are found over time, the authenticity of the New Testament remains solid and undeterred.

      The significance of having manuscripts that go back to within decades after the New Testament was written gives more legitimacy to the writings. If we can see that the information is consistent even after a long time or a shorter time, we can know that our Bible is certifiable.
