126 The New CSNTM.org

To anybody concerned with the origins of the New Testament and the manuscripts that support the different variations found in the manuscripts spread all over the world, this work done by Prof. Wallace and his team is of incalculable value.

Press release from the Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts (CSNTM) today announcing some very exciting things:

Since we began our work in 2002, a core part of our mission has been to make it possible to view and study New Testament manuscripts from anywhere in the world. We have worked toward this by traveling around the globe and capturing beautiful digital images of some of the most important extant manuscripts. Today, we are taking another step forward by making it easier than ever for you to access manuscripts. We’re launching the new CSNTM.org.

NewCSNTMHere are some of the features that you can expect to find now and in the coming weeks:

  • New Manuscripts – We will be adding 10-20 new manuscripts to our website weekly for the next few months. These will be from the National Library of Greece in Athens (our ongoing project for 2015–16), as…

About Herman of bibledifferences.net

The reasons for the differences between older Bibles like the King James Version and newer Bibles like the New International Version have fascinated me ever since my studies in Theology at the University of Pretoria in the seventies. I have great respect for scribes through the ages as well as Bible translators, so there must be good reasons for the differences. With more than 5600 Greek manuscripts and more than 19000 manuscripts of ancient translations to our disposal, the original autographs of the New Testament can be established without doubt. I investigate the reasons behind the differences and publish the facts in a post on my blogs www.bibledifferences.net (Afrikaans: www.bybelverskille.wordpress.com) to enable my readers to judge for themselves. Personally I love to make an informed decision based of facts. That is why I endeavor to provide that same privilege to the readers of my blogs. Since 1973 I am married to my dear wife and greatest friend, Leah Page, founder director of Act-Up Support (www.actup.co.za) a prayer ministry for families struggling with drug-, occult- and other dependencies. We are blessed with two daughters and two sons, four grand sons and two grand daughters. God is alive and omnipotent! Glory to His Name! Herman Grobler.

    I’m so glad you posted this, Herman. I got the email notification of this development at the CSNTM, too, but for some reason didn’t think to pass the info on–though I think I did like a post on Facebook about it–thanks for the reminder of the great work Wallace and his colleagues are engaged in. At this time in Christian history, when many seminaries and Bible colleges are finding fewer students interested in learning Greek (e.g. at Laidlaw where I study, last semester, out of a class of 40+ people, most of whom are studying for the ministry, there was only one student who took the Greek component of the 1 Corinthians paper–yup, yours truly), it’s more important than ever that we spread the word about the CSNTM to all the Greek geeks around the world.

    The CSNTM has personal significance to me, too, as Dan Wallace is a Christian hero of mine. It was one of his Youtube-posted presentations on the reliability of the New Testament that dislodged me from my TR-onlyism. That presentation marks a major turning point for me evangelically and it ignited my current passion for NT textual criticism! I commemorated the moment on my old blog (sadly the original vid has been taken down, so I’ve embedded a similar one recently): http://marturiamine.blogspot.co.nz/2013/09/confessions-of-ex-tr-evangelist.html

    Thanks again, Herman, God bless!
