Interestingly, the text has strayed very little from the original texts from the 1st century.

For those who think the text in the Bible has changed over the centuries like a game of telephone, here's some really good information regarding the number of differences in the text (textual variants) and the nature of those differences.

Here's a 3 minute and 19 second video by Daniel Wallace sharing a very high-level view of textual variants in the Scriptures.






Here's a bit more in-depth information in two ~25 min videos.

Daniel Wallace: Is What We Have Now What They Wrote Then? Part 1




Daniel Wallace: Is What We Have Now What They Wrote Then? Part 2





And for those who find the area of textual criticism somewhat interesting, here's a scholarly video lasting a little over 2 hours.




New to the Spin Room though I've been over on the SEC boards for a while. I am a pastor and a PhD student in New Testament, and so I am grateful to see Dan Wallace being brought up! Fantastic and I have found a new procrastination location.

Joseph Smith himself said he completed his inspired translation, but it was never released by the church. I wouldn’t either, because I’m sure his “translation” abilities are an embarrassment to them. In the 1970s a president of that church said it would be released but it never actually was. I guess the Book of Abraham fiasco was enough embarrassment over Joseph Smith for one decade.

I’m struggling to think of which would be worse, a Chinese Communist bible rewrite or a Joe Smith version.
