“But that which I think more highly of than all these flattering distinctions is the fact that Providence has given to our age, in which attacks on Christianity are so common, the Sinaitic Bible, to be to us a full and clear light as to what is the real text of God’s Word written, and to assist us in defending the truth by establishing its authentic form.”
~ Konstantin von Tischendorf

In honor of Konstantin von Tischendorf, a German biblical / textual scholar, who was born on this day in 1815.  He discovered one of the oldest and most valuable manuscripts of the Greek Bible, the Codex Sinaiticus, which dates back to the 4th century.

  1. Timely, considering the revisions Wycliffe has made to its version of the Word.
