Happy New Year

I Believe the Bible to be true,

However over time small errors have come in...

The Bible was hand-copied for hundreds of years, however the coping was done to a high standard,

Looking at the New Testement, at manuscript evidence we have at least 5,600 copies and fragments of the original Greek

This compares to 643 copies of Iliad, and 10 copies of Gallic Wars.

Some manuscript texts date to the early second and third centuries

Problems come with translations, where the translator may have use a word that does not mean the extact same thing....they may not use the right word.....

where that may be true, i still believe that after so many people re-writing it, even the smallest mistakes can completely change the meaning of some parts. weather it is people laziness in copying all the words, or if it is mis-interpreting of a word or a phrase, it could have easily been re-written.
