"The Basic document of the Christian Faith is the Greek New Testament." The original sources for the Greek New Testament were the inspired autographs of the various writers of the New Testament books. None of these autographs, however, are known to exist today. All that has come down to us are copies of copies of the original manuscript.

This question may then be asked: "How can a person be sure that the text of the New Testament in his possession today is accurate and free from error?" In answer to this question it can be stated that "A Study of the Significance of Certain Recently Discovered Greek Manuscripts With Reference to New Testament Translation" has shown that because of the work of textual criticism every Christian can know and understand for himself why certain recognized authorities in the field of textual criticism have believed that the present Greek text used as a basis for the most recent English translation very nearly approaches the Greek text of the original manuscripts.
