New Testament Textual Criticism

Online Course (Premium)

Dr. Wallace is arguably the foremost scholar today on the topic of New Testament Textual Criticism and has debated Bart Ehrman three times on the reliability of the New Testament! A real-life version of Indiana Jones, he travels the world in search of Biblical manuscripts and has founded The Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts, an institute that preserves Scripture by taking digital photographs of all known Greek New Testament manuscripts.

Dr. Daniel Wallace?

Now there's a way to get yourself equipped by a top scholar on one of the most important topics without enrolling in a seminary to do it. Learn about the science and art of New Testament textual criticism - the reconstruction of the very words that saints of the past have died for! 

  Course instructors Dr. Daniel Wallace & Michael Patton will take you through an in-depth study of the reliability of the New Testament so that you can learn how to handle allegations from skeptics about the New Testament and start reading some of those study notes in the margins of your Bible for yourself!
