I just read a fascinating online article that I’d like to share with you. It chronicles a fascinating piece of academic detective work. It isn’t quite The Da Vinci Code, but it moves in the same domain.
Before I give you a link to the article, however, let me say a word about the Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts. This organization seeks to study, photograph, and analyze written New Testament manuscripts, of which there are thousands, representing more than a million pages. The founder and Executive Director of CSNTM is Dr. Daniel Wallace, a professor of New Testament at Dallas Theological Seminary and an expert in the study of biblical manuscripts.
You can get a good idea of what CSNTM is all about from this short video:
Now for the detective story. CSNTM was asked to evaluate the authenticity of what was, perhaps, an extraordinary ancient New Testament manuscript. But was it real? Or was it a forgery? You can find the answer here. Happy reading!
