The Early Text of the New Testament aims to examine and assess from our earliest extant sources the most primitive state of the New Testament text now known. What sort of changes did scribes make to the text? What is the quality of the text now at our disposal? What can we learn about the nature of textual transmission in the earliest centuries? In addition to exploring the textual and scribal culture of early Christianity, this volume explores the textual evidence for all the sections of the New Testament. It also examines the evidence from the earliest translations of New Testament writings and the citations or allusions to New Testament texts in other early Christian writers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This expansive yet detailed treatment of data and sources consists of 21 expert contributions divided into three parts. ... The most obvious strengths of this volume are its conceptual and structural clarity, the breadth and depth of its treatment, and the diversity of approaches taken in presenting and analyzing the manuscript evidence for each book or corpus. The expertise of the contributors taken together with the concise, dense and meticulously referenced treatments of each category of evidence make it the go-to source for anyone interested in this facet of early Christianity or this period of New Testament textual history. * William L.
