Changing the Goalpost of New Testament Textual Criticism

  • By Abidan Paul Shah
$18.49
($25.00)
Product Description
Before the 1960s, the goal of New Testament Textual Criticism was singular: to retrieve the ""original text"" of the New Testament. Since then, the goalpost has incrementally shifted away from the ""original text"" to retrieving ""any text"" or ""many texts"" of the NT. Some scholars have even concluded that the ""original text"" is hopelessly lost and cannot be retrieved with any confidence or accuracy. Other scholars have gone a step further to claim that the idea of an ""original text"" itself is a misconception that needs to be abandoned. If this new approach in NTTC is correct, then the authority of Scripture is weakened or no longer valid. It will be shown in this book that such is not the case. Furthermore, emphasis will be placed on the need to return to the traditional goalpost of NTTC, i.e., to retrieve the original text. Without a generally definitive text, the door will be left wide open to recreate any desired text of the NT. An unsettled original text will result in an unsettled biblical theology due to a lack of any authoritative and standard text. Consequently, it will lead to an unsettled Christian faith and practice.
