very helpful and instructive the effort to topple the Textus Receptus
'The paper explores two dubious scholarly anecdotes which frequently circulate regarding Erasmus' Novum Instrumentum (1516), which I refer to as the "rush to print" anecdote and the "rash wager" anecdote. ¬†Here is a snippet from the paper:
It is the contention of this paper that during the nineteenth century, as part of the effort to topple the Textus Receptus and support the rise of the modern critical text, a number of unflattering scholarly anecdotes regarding Erasmus‚Äô Greek text began to circulate in secondary literature on the text and translation of the New Testament.¬† Several of these anecdotes have taken on legendary if not mythic proportions, having been passed from scholar to scholar and from student to student, often without any firm evidence or proof from primary sources to support their veracity.¬† Furthermore, these anecdotes continue to be retold from teaching lecterns and to be reprinted in contemporary works on text and translation.
Great Sermon! I know we're supposed to be charitable to our brethren who love the Alexandrian texts, but I can't help but wonder what the condition of Christ's church would have been today if they would have only left well enough alone 100 or so years ago.
Great Sermon! I appreciate Pastor Riddle's reply to James White's words on Luke 23:34. The Muslim Apologist didn't see anything but was simply looking for any way possible to discredit the authenticity of God's Word.
Selfishness Selfishness isn't living your life how you want. A key component of selfishness is a lack of consideration for others. In fact, one might say that selfishness might be forcing other to live how you would prefer to. No wonder even religious men tend to avoid organized church
Needed Discussion This is no doubt a needed discussion of great importance, which must be handled in the spirit of meekness. Gal.6:1
I pray that the Lord will grant you wisdom and bless your labors as you are preparing to discuss this issue coming up in Sep. at the Keach Conference.
All who are confessing, reformed Baptists dealing with this issue need to call to mind and apply these verses:
Pro.16:32; Gal.5:22-23; 2 Pet.1:5-9; Eph.4:26-27
Very interesting. Very good and all very interesting and edifying! It was good to see the video you posted on your blog and Robert Truelove's conclusion from 57.40 onwards and his perceptive comment about the Critical Text disciples of James White occasionally being just as rabid (and just as uninformed) as the KJO Ruckmanites.
May we fervently pray that God will be pleased to increase an interest in that "small but growing movement in some Reformed circles to rethink the adoption of the modern critical text and to take seriously the confessional articulation of the doctrine of the divine preservation of Scripture in chapter one of the WCF and the 2LBCF (1689)
May the Lord continue to bless your own
labours which are most helpful and instructive. Thank you!
Good Argumentation MacArthur states in his study Bible in the study notes on John 7:53-8:11.
"In spite of all these considerations of the unlikely unreliability of this section ,it is possible to be wrong on the issue, and thus it is good to consider the meaning of this passage and leave it in the text, just as with Mark 16:9-20."
Interesting interview! Over the last decade I have providentially greatly benefited from sermons on SermonAudio from all these contributors to the KJV Study Bible, Joel Beeke, Michael Barrett, Geoff Banister, Brian Borgman, Ian Goligher, John Greer, Jerold Lewis, Alan MacGregor, Andy McIntosh, Pooyan Mehrshahi, Colin Mercer, David Murray, Maurice Roberts, David Silverside, John Thackway, and Malcolm Watts.
So also noting so many godly UK contributors- including the Chairman and members of the Trinitarian Bible Society, it is a real blessing to hear this interview, and also a joy to have received my own copy of this highly recommended KJV study Bible which I am sure will prove a blessing to multitudes!
It was a good question about the 1689 Confession being included in future editions!
Great Sermon! I am sure this message will trouble many of us who are reformed and hold to the providential preservation of the word of God. The video in question can be accessed on Pastor Riddle's website blog via his SermonAudio page. This 'word magazine' is a 'must listen' and thought provoking (even disturbing) as we often tend to follow without question the most acclaimed authorities on textual issues. The Muslim Apologist saw something plain and obvious, but do we?
Great Sermon! Having listened to 'WM # 25: Review: Wretched Interview with James White' and followed the same information on your website blog I found this current rejoinder to be vey interesting indeed due to the points that you have graciously raised. It would be interesting to see Dr James White address those points and respond in kind. I am sure this sermon would be of interest to all who take the time to listen carefully.
Great study. This was a good study which showed the erroneous theology and methods of this preacher. We must preach God's sovereignty in salvation and revival, because this is the biblical teaching.
