How can we be sure that the text of the New Testament hasn't been altered in significant ways if we don't have the original documents, and there are 200,000 to 400,000 variants in the manuscript copies? Is Christian belief in jeopardy because the earliest manuscripts do not contain the story about the woman taken in adultery, the last 12 verses of the Gospel of Mark, or the verse on the Trinity found in 1 John 5:7? Is the Bible's teachings about Jesus and Christian doctrine in doubt if it can be shown that some church scribes intentionally changed some of the copies that have come down to us? We answer these questions in the 3 programs in this series.
The Old Testament prophet Daniel gives us the skeletal outline of all future Bible prophecy and is the key to understanding the book of Revelation. Jesus Christ himself quoted from Daniel, assuring us of its truths. This book contains Daniel's predictions of four world empires that will rise and fall, his predictions of a final world empire that will be led by a new and powerful global leader, and his warning of an alignment of nations that will come against the nation of Israel in the last days. Where do we find ourselves in the events Daniel describes. We will take you step-by-step through the book of Daniel to help you understand its message and the events God foretells are up ahead.
The John Ankerberg Show is a daily half-hour radio program and a weekly half-hour internationally syndicated television program using informal debates between representatives of differing belief systems, and documentary-styled presentations on major issues in society to which the historic Christian faith has something of consequence to say.
