Do we have the right books in the NT? - judge - 09-14-2004

It is quite common today, particularly with the success of The Da vinci Code, for skeptics to argue that the books in the protestant NT we chosen from hundreds of possible books that existed and that the Roman Church chose cetain books for it's own reasons and left out books which should have been included.

Here <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""> ... full&page=</a><!-- m --> is an example of a thread on another forum where a skeptic uses this very argument WRT the gospels.

I don't think modern believers realise what a great asset they have in the peshitta and the COE.

Here we have an independent group of believers with the most ancient liturgy at use anywhere who came to use the exact same gospels and the almost exactly the same books in it's canon.

Skeptics do not really know how to respond to this.

Not only this but, skeptics also love to attack the integrity of the NT because all the greek versions differ from each other. They claim that we don't have the original copy and that the ones we have were altered.
They cannot use this argument against the peshitta as we have seen demonstrated on this forum time and time again.

How long till the greek primacists see the light? <!-- s:bigups: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/bigups.gif" alt=":bigups:" title="Big Ups" /><!-- s:bigups: -->
