    I'd be curious as to the responses to this statement.
    So that there is no confusion let me continue the quote

    Mr Metzger was a genius, I am sure if he erred in his thoughts, someone would have commented on it. FF Bruce for one. I would have to know the whole context and a few months of study to comment :)

    Put it in a simple question.

    I have no question regarding the statement. I take it as a fact though I think there are many on this board who would take issue with this statement. Especially those in support of AV 1611 only.

    Every history and biography is written because the writer has a point to make that he thinks hasn't been made or has been wrongly stated. St John, at the end of his biography of Jesus, says as much. Of all the available material, John selected the stuff that made his point.

    I agree with this - however man is fallible and always has the possibility of "adding error" to what is written.

    Therefore we still have to go back to the source (the Bible) and continually compare what some later theologian "thinks about it" to what it actually "says" as we too are guided by the Holy Spirit (priesthood of all believers - and all that).

    God will not give us the excuse "I am not to blame for teaching that error -- I just believed whatever F.F. Bruce or Metzger told me to think".

    So our task is to take the good - and leave the bad.

    in Christ,

    Bob
