The Bible & Church day conference on 20 June will take place at Westminster Chapel, London. It is sponsored by Tyndale House in Cambridge, and designed “to support and equip Churches with excellence in Biblical Scholarship.” The talks are as follows:
Have we got the history right? Dr. Peter J. Williams
A widely held idea is that Christian beliefs arose over a long period of time through a mixture of gullibility and conspiracy. Early Christian records are held to be legend, myth or fabrication.
Probably the most popular idea in relation to the Bible is that books have been missed out or put in due to political pressure and various media have been full of talk about ‘other gospels’.
Have we got the text right? Dr. Dirk Jongkind
Another popular idea is that the Bible has been corrupted, either by deliberate falsification or simply lost through passage of time.
