Dear Brothers and sisters,
I have two questions.
1.Bart D.Ehrman said that "There is very little we can say about the reliability of the NT in terms of what the original manuscript says. All we have is copies of copies of copies etc. which rendered our ability to know what the original text says almost impossible. "
So, do I/we need to worry about his (Bart D. Ehrman) assertion or statement above…?
- It is said that Polycarb, Ignatius and Papias were John’s disciple. But I never find a solid evidences proving that they were John’s disciples.
(N. B. Irenaeus said Ploycarb was John’s disciple but we never heard from Polycarb or Ignatius himself stating that they were John’s disciple. What if Irenaeus of Smyrna was lying …?)
