GCU Welcomes Dr. Peter Williams
January 12, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
A Look at the Manuscript Evidence
The College of Theology is pleased to feature special guest speaker and globally renowned Bible research scholar Peter Williams, PhD. Dr. Williams chairs the International Greek New Testament Project, which is currently producing the world’s most comprehensive information on the manuscripts of John’s gospel. He is also a member of the Translation Oversight Committee of the English Standard Version Bible.
The amount of manuscript evidence for the Bible far surpasses that of any other ancient set of books. Dr. Williams will discuss how reliable historical information could be passed on through manuscript copies over vast periods of time. Bible manuscripts can be shown to contain historical information, which can be trusted at least as much as the ancient writings discovered by archaeologists.
