College Class on Bible Texts and Versions, Manuscript Evidence, and Biblical Preservation

At Mukwonago Baptist Church we have started a course on Bible Texts and Versions, Manuscript Evidence, and Biblical Preservation.  The course outline states:

This course on Biblical preservation, Bible texts and versions, and manuscript evidence will examine God’s promises concerning the perfect preservation of Scripture and its perpetual availability to His churches.  The fulfillment of those promises throughout history in the Hebrew Masoretic Text and the Greek Textus Receptus underlying the Authorized, King James Version of the Bible will be surveyed through an examination of the history of the Hebrew and Greek text’s transmission.  The errors and corruptions found in the Greek alternatives to the Textus Receptus, the Hebrew Masoretic text, and the English Authorized Version will be examined and refuted, as will the unbelieving presuppositions underlying these non-preserved texts and the unbelieving authors of those presuppositions.  The historic Baptist position on the preservation of Scripture will also be examined, as will the history of the Bible in English.

If you are in the area, we would love to have you join us.  If you are not, the course lectures are being posted online here.  Discussions about class content should also be available for those taking or auditing the course at a distance in conjunction with each lecture at the same website.
