AN HISTORICAL ACCOUNT OF TWO NOTABLE CORRUPTIONS OF SCRIPTURE PDF

Using the writings of the early Church Fathers , the Greek and Latin manuscripts and the testimony of the first versions of the Bible, Newton claims to have demonstrated that the words "in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one," that support the Trinity doctrine, did not appear in the original Greek Scriptures. He then attempts to demonstrate that the purportedly spurious reading crept into the Latin versions, first as a marginal note , and later into the text itself. Newton argued that, by a small alteration in the Greek text, the word "God" was substituted to make the phrase read "God was manifest in the flesh. Modern versions of the Bible from the Critical Text usually omit the addition to 1 John , but some place it in a footnote, with a comment indicating that "it is not found in the earliest manuscripts".

He then traced the way in which the spurious reading crept into the Latin versions, first as a marginal note, and later into the text itself. He showed that it was first taken into a Greek text in by Cardinal Ximenes on the strength of a late Greek manuscript corrected from the Latin. Summing up both passages, Newton said: "If the ancient churches in debating and deciding the greatest mysteries of religion, knew nothing of these two texts, I understand not, why we should be so fond of them now the debates are over.

Yet it was only in the nineteenth century that Bible translations appeared correcting these passages. Historical Background Why did Newton not publish these findings during his lifetime? A glance at the background of the times may explain this. Those who wrote against the doctrine of the Trinity were still subject to persecution in England. As late as the Act for the Suppression of Blasphemy and Profaneness made it an offense to deny one of the persons of the Trinity to be God, punishable with loss of office, employment and profit on the first occasion, and imprisonment for a repetition.

In a pamphlet attacking the Trinity was burned by order of the House of Lords, and the next year its printer and author were prosecuted. In Thomas Aikenhead, an eighteen-year-old student charged with denying the Trinity, was hanged at Edinburgh, Scotland.

For they act according to their religion but we contrary to ours. The history of the corruption in short is this.
