Re: Be Afraid. Be Very Afraid For. Confirmation 16:8 Original

Afaik, nobody in Bible text scholarship defends the idea today. About 50 years ago, Metzger put forth a confused equivocal attempt.

the accuracy? Of Richard Carrier

If you going to quote Richard Carrier as your source, what do you do with his many errors? ========= This is amusing: “All the earliest manuscripts extant, including the earliest complete bibles to survive, lack the LE; it begins to appear in the extant manuscript record only in the 4th century, whi...
