In two previous issues of TOTT, we examined two texts that are challenged by modern textual criticism. By no means are these isolated examples. There are, in fact, hundreds of examples. Those two, however, and the two we examine here (Mark 16:9–20 & John 7:53—8:11) comprise four major textual battlegrounds. If we may submit, as the last sentence of this article reads, “We are forced to ask once again, as we have done so before: just how exactly does modern, rationalistic textual criticism defend the Word of God, glorify our Lord, and edify His Body?” We pray this article will challenge and encourage.
