The Dutch Adventist Church creates a magazine, Contact, that goes to about 3000 people who are interested in the Bible. As some of these people have been receiving this magazine for quite a few years, the editors wanted to have arecurring theological column, meant for the long-time readers. This article should match the theme of the edition. The editors asked me to write this column.

This is the eighth column, which was meant to discuss the topic of language. In the limited space available, I tried to show how the Bible has been preserved by copyists and the challenges that these manuscripts bring into Bible reading. It also has pretty pictures of ancient manuscripts! Read it here.

Read the others: Time, No, Dimensions, Doubts, Fire, Numbers and Balance.
