New Testament Writers were Inspired by Jesus–But were they Inerrant? rb

This is a presentation of one of my better earlier posts for new readers who did not see it when it was originally posted. It is completely rewritten and updated.


Last time, we discussed the nature of the Bible by focusing on the Old Testament.
