I review ‘The Orthodox Corruption of Scripture’ by Professor Bart D. Ehrman


I read from ‘The Orthodox Corruption of Scripture: The Effect of Early Christological Controversies on the Text of the New Testament’ by Dr Bart D. Ehrman, published by Oxford University Press, US. 2011, pages 3-4.

Victors not only write history: they also reproduce the texts. Bart Ehrman explores the close relationship between the social history of early Christianity and the textual tradition of the emerging New Testament, examining how early struggles between Christian “heresy” and “orthodoxy” affected the transmission of the documents over which many of the debates were waged.
