Citing a typical description of early Christian scribal culture, Michael Kruger comments:

There are a lot of claims in this brief couple of sentences. Unfortunately, virtually every one of them is mistaken.

Kruger then proceeds to discuss three ways in which this early culture was comparatively more professional and competent than it is often described as being.

For the details of Kruger’s comments, see his original post.


On the eschatology of the Christian tradition’s major creeds, Jake Mailhot comments:
