What about disputed passages in the Bible, such as the ending of Mark 16?

To help answer the question about disputed passages this video will show you how to evaluate Biblical manuscripts, how they are dated and what that means to us.

This video shows you actual manuscripts and you’ll see it really isn’t difficult or mysterious to date them. You’ll also see the three key manuscripts that are what Bibles refer to as the “most ancient and reliable.”

The bottom line about the Mark passage as you’ll see is that the manuscripts that do not have the disputed ending are hundreds of years earlier than the ones in which it was added. However, these manuscripts were not available to the translators of the King James Bible.

The PDF of the notes for the class is below the video.
