Preservation of the Bible

Good article on the preservation of the Scriptures. One Old Testament problem chapter (2nd Samuel?), a couple of sentences tacked onto the Gospel of Mark, and many spelling variations.

I think some ~translations~ teach salvation by works. That is the biggest problem.

The copied ~texts~ are absolutely rock solid on all verses dealing with salvation and the main doctrines of Christianity.

Most ancient texts have attestation of less than 10 copies. The New Testament has 2,600 and counting, as more are discovered, with 99.5% accuracy.   —C.S.
