  1.  We hear a lot about the “autographs,” or the “original manuscripts.” 2 Timothy 3:16 tells us that Scripture is “inspired,” but was Paul speaking about copies or the original document?

  2. The textual scholars who claim to be able to find “the best reading” have come up with some outlandish principles. Bengel made up a rule to help him decide what to leave in and what to leave out: “The harder reading is to be preferred.” Does this mean that if you find a reading that contradicts other verses, challenges basic Bible doctrines, and weakens the Deity of Christ that it is to be the preferred reading?

  3. Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, never sinned, which means He never lied. How do the modern versions make Jesus a liar?

  1. There are Messianic Jewish translations of Scripture that claim to take into account a deeper understanding of the Hebraisms and the Jewish understanding of the meaning of Scripture. We often hear that these are much better translations than the King James Bible because the King James translators were culturally-conditioned, and their culture and language was not Jewish. Your view of this claim.

  2. The NASB has been advertised as “the most accurate and scholarly translation” of Scripture ever provided. There is also a 1995 “Update” of the NASB. Tell us about the NASB.

  3. The newer Bibles seem to have a major problem with the Deity of Christ which is truly one of the “fundamentals of the fundamentals.” We see this, for example, in 1 Timothy 3:16—“God was manifest in the flesh” changed to “he who was revealed in the flesh”—And also in I John 5:7, a wonderful Trinitarian “proof text" is deleted or mangled beyond recognition. How do we explain the attacks on the Deity of Christ?

  4. On page 80 you make reference to the Lamsa Bible. People often ask questions about it, and claim it is “better” and “more accurate” than the King James Bible. Tell us about the Lamsa Bible.
