The use of paper as a writing material in the ancient world was created first by the Arabs. It was later traded by Arabian tradesmen into a European context. Paper was used as a material upon which the New Testament was transmitted. Paper manuscripts are much later in date than either papyrus or parchment. In this video, Dr. Daniel B. Wallace of the Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts (CSNTM) describes the history of the use of paper in the transmission of the New Testament.
