Hello again folks! Good 'ol Bob Mitchell has just published this amazing summary on his SHOFAR MINISTRIES blog [] of the amazing evidence of the historical record hence accuracy of the New Testament [NT] versus the 'classics':

Author           Written           Earliest Copy       Time Span     No. of Ancient Copies
Pliny             61-113 AD             850 AD             750 years                     7
Caesar         100- 44 BC             900 AD           1,000 years                   10
Plato            427-347 BC            900 AD           1,200 years                    7
Aristotle       384-322 BC           1100 AD          1,400 years                   37
Sophocles    496-406 BC           1000 AD          1,400 years                  193
Euripedes     480-406 BC           1100 AD          1,500 years                    9
NT              48 AD [Mark]        130 AD [NT]       80 years                   24,630

I need add no more [at least for this particular blog!] except to say that; in mathematical terms; the percentage and multiplicity of the manuscript sources; is overwhelming. Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed and in short supply; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

God bless you and God bless Israel ... Keith JS ... 15-Feb-2010
