In Episode 76, we talk about the transmission of biblical texts in the New Testament. Transmission refers to how an original text (e.g. Paul's Letter to the Romans) has been copied and duplicated through the ages to what we have today.
Unfortunately, there is a widespread perception that the Bible is just a messy copy of multiple copies, therefore making it an unreliable source. This is far from the truth, which is why it's important that we learn and understand the transmission of biblical information.
So, if you've ever been faced with this argument in a discussion or have your own doubts, then today's episode is for you.
Tune in now and let's go bigger, better, and deeper!
