  • Beyond What Is Written: Erasmus and Beza as Conjectural Critics of the New Testament, Jan Krans -- “At the origin of this study lies simple curiosity. Sometimes, in the critical apparatus of a Greek New Testament or in commentaries, one comes across instances in which critics 'go beyond what is written' by proposing a conjecture.”
  • Covid: Wuhan lab leak is ‘feasible’, say British spies -- “British intelligence agencies now believe it is “feasible” that the global pandemic began with a coronavirus leak from a Chinese research laboratory.”
  • Evidences for the Inspiration of the Hebrew Vowel Points -- “The fact that the Lord Jesus states that a single dot, the smallest Hebrew vowel, would not pass from the Law, and His evident recognition of the equality of the Hebrew vowels and consonants, evidences the equal inspiration of both the consonants and the vowels of the Hebrew text, while also clearly evidencing that the Hebrew vowels were already extant...”
  • How To Think About Israel -- “Given all the controversy, Christians sometimes wonder how they should think about Israel.”
  • How To Turn Complementarians into Egalitarians -- “As Tom Schreiner has shown, narrow complementarians...take Paul’s statement, ‘I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority’ to mean ‘I DO allow a woman to teach and exercise authority.’”
  • My Conversations with Numerous Exvangelicals -- “just because your church or group went off or way off the rails, that doesn’t mean that the Bible or Christianity itself are not true.”
  • Rand Paul Says He Won’t Get COVID-19 Vaccine: ‘Show Me Evidence’ -- “Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) announced this weekend that he won’t get vaccinated against COVID-19, explaining that he already contracted the virus last year and has ‘natural immunity.’”
  • Reina-Valera-Gómez? Over 20 reasons why I cannot endorse the Reina-Valera “Gómez” -- “While these different groups are spending so much time and energy and money producing so many different Spanish Bibles and fighting amongst each other over them, only 426 of approximately 6,000 languages have the entire Bible translated in their language. The focus is not where it should be.”
  • The 1769 Blayney Edition -- “Oxford...enlisted the services of Benjamin Blayney who undertook his own seven year project. He had been commissioned to collate three sources.”
  • The Absurdity of Anti-KJV Rhetoric -- “Who am I kidding though, it might pain a modern critical text advocate to be overly charitable to people who read the KJV or admit that a gap-toothed KJVO might be correct about something.”

  • The most spoken languages worldwide in 2021 -- “In 2021, there were around 1.35 billion people worldwide who spoke English either natively or as a second language, slightly more than the 1.12 billion Mandarin Chinese speakers at the time of survey. Hindi and Spanish accounted for the third and fourth most widespread languages that year.”

  • WM 117: Conjectural Emendation, White, Beza, and Rev 16:5 -- “...based on Beza’s notes, a question might be raised as to whether his reading at Revelation 16:5 was, in fact, a true conjectural emendation.”
