Re: [textualcriticism] Re: BTW: James
- That is basically the standard definition of inspiration for Fundamentalists (AKA: "Evangelicals"), but that is not the definition which I would espouse. I would say that inspiration lies in the message and not in the words which then entails that there is no manuscript of scriptures, unless radically altered to set forth a different message, which is not inspired. If some such revision of the definition of "inspiration" is not made, we do not have an inspired Word of God, and never have since the first copy (as opposed to autograph) was penned.george

Subject: [textualcriticism] Re: BTW: JamesIs this not why the standard statement on inspiration says that only the "autographs" are inspired? I for one believe it is true that no single manuscript we have today is free of error. What do you believe? That there is a Byzantine manuscript that exists today that is free of error?

Subject: [textualcriticism] Gethsemane
Could someone tell me what language Gethsemane is. I thought it was Latin, but I checked several references and there is some contradiction.
