Week 16: Has the Bible been Corrupted?

We're continuing to explore questions surrounding the origin and history of the Bible. This week we're focusing on the question, "Has the Bible been corrupted?" In other words, is the Bible we have today the same as the one written 2000 years ago?

Key Themes:
  • Assertions from non-believers about the corruption of the Bible
  • How manuscripts were copied and preserved in the ancient world
  • Case studies:
    • John 7:53–8:11
    • The Lord's Prayer
    • 1 John 5:7–8
    • Mark 16:9–20

Digging Deeper:
  • Video clip: "Snake Salvation" (example of using Mark 16 as a foundation for theology)
