Textual Criticism remains today as one of the most overlooked disciplines in Biblical studies. In this collection, Dr. Daniel B. Wallace of the Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts (CSNTM) teaches people from the lay to the scholarly level about the basic principles and practices of New Testament Textual Criticism (NTTC). Dr. Wallace defines New Testament Textual Criticism and discusses topics like identifying textual variants, categorizing manuscripts, and interpreting the available evidence.

Customer Reviews


I was glad to find this today! I have been approached by several people asking questions (on top of my own questions) regarding discrepancies in the Bible and Dr. Wallace articulates clearly and confidently issues surrounding this matter. These videos impressed me specifically in how they take very complicated concepts and make them more easily digestible.

Keep them coming!


Thanks Dan for making your rich ministry available in such an engaging format. The work you do is a treasure chest that is now available to anyone who would like to experience it.

What a wonderful way to combat the ignorance that movies like Da Vinci Code play on. Armed with this first hand understanding of what the art and science of textual criticism is, the informed Christian can disregard with confidence these high profile attempts to discredit the authenticity of scripture.

Others have understood and practiced this discipline before. But you have used considerable effort and creativity to make this discipline accessible and understandable to so many.

Thank you.

Excellent work!

Great explanation on how scholars use evidence, reason and logic to reconstruct the most likely textual match to the original New Testament manuscripts. Anyone curious about the accuracy of today's New Testament text as compared to the orignal New Testament manuscripts should view thiseries.
