Bilingual Checklist

 

 

 

 

Introduction

 

 

There exist thousands of New Testament Greek manuscripts, but essentially there are two types or groups. The vast majority of Greek manuscripts are of the type that we call textus receptus, or Received Text. The other type consist of manuscripts that come primarily from Alexandria, Egypt, the center of philosophy and apostasy. This type we call Alexandrian. We can easily see the difference that exists between these two types when we compare them.

 

Using a checklist, you can tell to which type, Received Text or Alexandrian text, any New Testament belongs that you might have.

 

Many today tell us that the differences between Bible versions are very slight, of no doctrinal importance, and that it really doesn’t matter which version we use. I believe that you will see that those who say this are very wrong.
