The Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts

Dan Wallace has started a great foundation for the study of NT Manuscripts. I encourage you to visit the site here.  I’ve added it to the side bar under the abbreviation CSNTM. Here below is the “about” information from the web site:


The Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts (CSNTM), under the umbrella of The Center for the Research of Early Christian Documents (CRECD), exists for the following purposes:

  1. To make digital photographs of extant Greek New Testament manuscripts so that such images can be preserved, duplicated without deterioration, and accessed by scholars doing textual research.
  2. To utilize developing technologies (OCR, MSI, etc.) to read these manuscripts and create exhaustive collations.
  3. To analyze individual scribal habits in order to better predict scribal tendencies in any given textual problem.
  4. To publish on various facets of New Testament textual criticism
  5. To develop electronic tools for the examination and analysis of New Testament manuscripts.
  6. To cooperate with other institutes in the great and noble task of determining the wording of the autographa of the New Testament.

Reliability of the New Testament

For any of you interested in learning more about the transmission of the New Testament Scriptures and their reliability throughout the centuries, I encourage everyone to take an hour out of their day and watch this video presentation by Dr. James White of Alpha and Omega Ministries.

It is very informative and very practical for those of you studying the New Testament in Greek, especially if you are using a UBS or NA27 that has manuscript footnotes and frequencies. Enjoy the video and let me know what you think if you have the chance.
