The Bible

Do we have God's words or not?

  • The Bible

    God's Word is the foundation of how we live as Christians. It is through this book that we are led to eternal life.

  • Under Attack

    Sadly, many people believe that the Bible is just a copy of a copy of an old document lost to history.

  • Equipped

    What if every Christian could be trained by the world's top scholars on the topic of New Testament manuscripts?

Learn from the Scholars

This January and February, learn directly from Dr. Dan Wallace and Michael Patton about the New Testament manuscripts.

With the premium course, you get direct access to these scholars, so you can be equipped to defend the Word of God.

Dates: this premium course begins Monday, January 20th, and ends on Sunday, March 8th.

The live meetings take place on Mondays at 8 PM Eastern (5 PM Pacific).
