mid-week apologetics booster (2-4-2016)

Good morning all,

Hope you’re having a great week and enjoying the (brrrrrr) cold weather!  I pray that something here might encourage you to contend for the faith (Jude 3) and demolish arguments (2 Cor. 10:5) that keep people from considering our King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

  2. New Testament reliability | Upholding Truth: “Patristic quotations” — thousands of citations made by early church fathers — include substantial portions of the New Testament.  For years, it was believed that all but 11 verses from the New Testament could be recovered from these writings alone.  Recently, however, some NT scholars announced that it’s more likely the case that 46% of the New Testament could be reconstructed from patristic quotations.  Regardless if this is true, the fact remains that even if we didn’t have a single NT manuscript or copy of the Bible, we could still reconstruct nearly half of the entire New Testament from sermons, catechisms, lectionaries, and other writings of the 2nd and 3rd century church fathers who frequently quoted the NT: https://upholdingtruth.wordpress.com/tag/new-testament-reliability/

Then Jesus said to the chief priests, the officers of the temple guard, and the elders, who had come for him, “Am I leading a rebellion, that you have come with swords and clubs?  Every day I was with you in the temple courts, and you did not lay a hand on me. But this is your hour –when darkness reigns.” Luke 22:52-53

Blessings to you all
