Oftentimes critics of the Christian faith will try to make a case that the Bible has been adapted over the centuries. It's changed; it's been altered. You can't trust that what you read in your ESV is what Isaiah or Moses actually wrote.
This has been disproven time and time again. Take, for example, the witness of the Dead Sea Scrolls. When they were discovered, they bridged a gap of an entire millennium in textual transmission. And what did they show? That there had been no changes to the text.
Our Bibles today are faithful and accurate to what our forefathers/mothers in the faith were studying in Hebrew thousands of years ago.
As we at DPC are currently in the midst of a part of the Scriptures written by Moses, this is a good time to revisit this story you might have seen from this past September. It's an incredible discovery, with a really cool video, showing off some astounding science & technology:
Did you read this line: "the passages are identical, right down to paragraph breaks"
The question is not whether or not we have accurate texts, copied faithfully from the pens of the inspired prophets and apostles.
The question is: will we believe what these texts tell us?
