Dear Doubting Thomas, I know you think the modern Bible is not reliable. You asked, “Who can possibly know what the original text said?” Well, Bible scholars actually do know what the original text said because there are two full copies of the New Testament that date within 300 years of the original composition (and thousands more pieces from before that time). Some Old Testament manuscripts date back to 250 BC. One of the most popular Bible versions (NIV) was translated by more than 100 scholars from the best Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek texts. Aside from that, our God is loving and active. Don’t you think he would oversee the translation of the Bible? Sincerely, Your Friend in Christ
P.S. Think about Mark 13:31: “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.”
