The servant of Jesus Christ must know about the history of the New Testament text to avoid mistakes, and to appreciate what God has done through faithful men and women.
The student will study the Greek manuscripts of the New Testament, the history, methods, and status of New Testament Textual Criticism (TC), and collation practice. The history of the printed Greek New Testament, apparatuses in the Greek New Testament, and practical applications of textual data are covered.

Those attending will learn the basics concerning New Testament textual criticism, appreciation of historic textual studies and the reliability of the inerrant Word of God. Also, the student will learn the use of Greek New Testament textual apparatuses and do research in New Testament text and translations.
