The "Original" Tyndale Bible

March 23, 2018 - Richard Mansfield — Earlier this week, we released The Greek New Testament, Produced at Tyndale House, Cambridge with apparatus and morphological tagging. The foundation that produced this new edition of the New Testament in Greek shares its name with William Tyndale (1494 – 1536), known for the Tyndale Bible, a translation so controversial at the time that it cost Tyndale his life! William Tyndale believed that all people should have access to the Bible in their own language. While he did not complete the entire Bible before his death, he did translate the ...

New! N. T. Wright's Small Faith--Great God

March 19, 2018 - Richard Mansfield — I’m not certain I’d want to share the sermons I first preached in my twenties. It’s not that they were heretical or anything like that; but when I occasionally look at an old sermon I preached from my younger days, I can now see where my outlook and perspective lacked the wisdom of life experience. Some of those old sermons could probably be reworked, but I doubt I’d share them as they essentially are. Of course, I’m no N. T. Wright. I have no doubt that N. T. Wright, former Anglican Bishop of Durham, is one of those figures alive in the ...

A Closer Look at Omanson’s A Textual Guide to the Greek New Testament

March 15, 2018 - Richard Mansfield — I’ve written before about taking a class in textual criticism under John Polhill, back in the 90s. I knew nothing about the subject beforehand, but the class stands out as one of the favorite of my MDiv studies. One of our textbooks was A Textual Commentary of the Greek New Testament by the late Bruce M. Metzger. This work, a running commentary of the textual variants chosen by the editorial committee of the United Bible Societies’ Greek New Testament, still remains a standard work to this day. Twelve years later after the second edition of ...
