Video Lectures: The Lucianic Recension, and John 7:53-8:11

            In the 12th lecture in the series Introduction to NT Textual Criticism, I discuss the theory of the Lucianic Recension - a key part of the basis for the shift to the Alexandrian Text that occurred as the compilation of Westcott & Hort was favored in the late 1800s.  (28 minutes)

Lecture 12 - The Lucianic Recension

            Also, in a two-hour presentation, hosted by apologist Sam Shamoun, I present a defense of the genuineness of John 7:53-8:11, correcting some widely circulated misinformation and addressing some other concerns along the way.

            My book A Fresh Analysis of John 7:53-8:11, explaining how the passage was lost in an early transmission-line, and why it was subsequently transferred to other locations in the text, is available at Amazon and as a free download from the files at the NT Textual Criticism discussion-group on Facebook.

  1. Hi James, In your view, do the "I AM" sayings in Gospel of John originate from the historical Jesus? as in did Jesus actually utter these sayings?
