It’s commonly assumed that the Bible is full of errors. However, 99% of the time people are unable to point to any possible mistakes. The Bible does contain some apparent contradictions and a little study of the 'world's best seller' will give confidence to the reader.
Most people who think the Bible contains mistakes have believed what someone else has said rather than reading the text for themselves. Books from ancient times, not surprisingly, have no original documents. Even Shakespeare's plays from the 16th Century are only in existence in copy form, there are no originals.
Of the works of Homer we have 643 copies that give an accuracy of 95%. The New Testament has about 14,000 copies giving an accuracy of about 99.5%. The Dead Sea Scrolls discovered in 1947 have proved beyond doubt the amazing accuracy of the copying methods adopted by the ancient scribes. With any translation there are going to be difficulties in expressing exactly what the original writers wrote, but Dr Nelson Glueck, an outstanding Jewish archaeologist, has stated that 'No archaeological discovery has ever controverted a biblical reference.’
So we can be sure we have in our language the text of this unique book, which surely deserves more than a partial reading.
