I recently saw this interesting interview at TGC with my friend Peter Williams. Peter is a biblical scholar and the CEO of Tyndale House in Cambridge, England–a study center for evangelical scholars. I spent my sabbatical at Tyndale House in 2009 and had a delightful time.
Here are the various questions he answers:
- How should preachers and teachers handle Mark 16:9–20, which isn’t included in the earliest manuscripts?
- How do you encourage Christians to trust their English Bibles are sufficient to equip them for every good work?
- Are churches teaching people enough about humanity’s role in the transmission of the biblical texts?
Here is the full interview:
Unrelated to this TGC interview, here is a helpful talk by Peter on the reliability of the Gospels:

Thank you for posting these videos.
Paul’s letter to the Ephesians creates awareness historically that there were schemes & deciet about, deliberately intentioned also, but not to falsley establish Christianty but to defend it from attack as a good shepherd would.Eph 4:14.
When you look at modern historical science, universities & consensus its not hard to see how ideas can be pushed through a heirachy or government seeking to silence minority views. In this sense too Paul’s letter seems consistant with the culture of yesteryear & today, another correlation I would say.
