Sabbatum Excerpt: Darrell Bock and Daniel Wallace on NT Textual Variants


Regarding Ehrman’s claim that all manuscripts are filled with errors; we noted the kinds of errors that are to be found in the copies. The vast majority of them are quite inconsequential. And less than 1 percent  of all textual variants both affect the meaning of that verse (though none affects a core doctrine) and have some plausibility of authenticity. [1]
