  1. The Nicea Council and the Canon of the Bible

How can we trust the Bible as it was edited by men? Some thought that the canonization of the Bible was carried at the Council of Nicea. This is no true. Canonization was not even in the agenda at the Council of Nicea. This misconceived idea was the creation of Dan Brown and many others.  When and how were the books of the New Testament decided upon as canon? View this video.

Why the Bible is the Most Reliable of All Ancient manuscripts

Over the centuries, the Bible has been attached more than any book in the history of mankind. There is an argument that what we have of the Bible are copies of documents which are copies of the copies of the originals. Along the transmission of such copies, there were corruptions to the text. Dr Sam Lamerson argues that this is not true. We have thousands of copies of these documents in the New Testament ; some dating back to 200 AD, many times more than any ancient document. View Dr Lamerson’s, Kerby Anderson’s (Probe Ministries Intl)  and Dr N T Wright’s  arguments in this video.
