Latest news from the Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts:
On October 1, 2011 Dr. Bart D. Ehrman and CSNTM's Executive Director, Dr. Daniel B. Wallace, debated the reliability of the text of the New Testament at Southern Methodist University. This was the largest debate over the text of the New Testament in history. A professional film crew recorded the debate, which is now available to you. In this exciting dialogue you have the opportunity to listen to two leading scholars talk about this issue from opposing viewpoints. Can we trust the text of the New Testament? You decide.

There is a video trailer about the debate, which is a bit too melodramatic for my taste, but here it is:

For my own thoughts on this debate, see here.


  1. I agree. This is too melodramatic. Who's the intended audience? The trailer looks more Hollywood than Princeton.

  2. I should mention that this was by far the largest debate ever of its kind, and since the DVD was released on Monday, I have heard it has sold tremendously well. Maybe some inspiration from Hollywood is necessary. Anyway it is better than a "requiem for a discipline" to allude to a certain article.

  3. I think the use of such media is great, provided it doesn't distort. I'm sure that Ehrman and Wallace between them will be responsible for inspiring and recruiting a lot of people into NT TC.
