My Favorite Passage That's Not in the Bible Disputed New Testament Passages: Textual Criticism Put Into Practice

    • Society & Culture

The story of the woman caught in adultery found traditionally in John 7:53-8:11 is one the most beloved and well-known stories from the Christian tradition. Many would go so far as to claim that these verses are their favorite in all of the Bible. However, in light of their popular embrace, Dr. Daniel B. Wallace of the Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts (CSNTM) shows how the evidence is almost overwhelming that these verses were not originally included in John's gospel. Strangely enough, the verses still remain in almost all of the modern English translations. Dr. Wallace gives reasons why they remain, and conversely, why they ought to be relegated to a footnote instead.
