Authenticity of the New Testament


Dogmatic Constitution On Divine Revelation Dei Verbum solemnly promulgated by His Holiness Pope Paul VI, On November 18, 1965:

It is clear, therefore, that sacred tradition, Sacred Scripture and the teaching authority of the Church, in accord with God’s most wise design, are so linked and joined together that one cannot stand without the others, and that all together and each in its own way under the action of the one Holy Spirit contribute effectively to the salvation of souls.


I am confident that the Holy Bible is the inspired, written Word of God. It doesn’t concern me whether we have the originals or copies. God’s written Word, His Truth, has endured throughout the centuries and will continue to do so.
