Correcting an Error

In my previous post, there is a transcription error: in answering the question about the number of textual variants I wrote,

a best guess would be somewhere in the neighborhood of 30,000 or more.

In my rushed typing, I missed a zero. That should have read, “a best guess would be somewhere in the neighborhood of 300,000 or more.”

I thought that needed to be corrected.

  1. I think you MIGHT have made another slight slip of the keyboard (believe me I do it a lot!) Even better!!! ” a best guest???” Does this mean you will only invite folks over if they live in cities of 300,000? Or did you mean to say “best guess…”

    But your serious point is well taken, and there is no book in the entire world other than the Sacred Scriptures that can even approach a fraction of the evidence, internal and external, for its validity. Good post as always.

    • Thanks for catching that, Richard! I was in such a hurry to get the next post up (which should be live right now), I slipped up. Thanks to good folks like you, I can correct things quickly!

      Hope your doing well.

"I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them. For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naïve." (Romans 16:17-18) Please read "The Comments Policy."
