a lot of people seem to believe that truth is in the oldest scrollsScholars have said that, other than word order, these earlier Uncial copies (all capital letters with no spaces between words) differ from the Cursive (like handwriting, capital and small letters, separate words) in only about 50 places, and none of these are essential for any important doctrine.
is there a big hole between these scrolls and the others ?
why should i believe that these scrolls are nearer Jesus will than younger scrolls
Thank you very much
That was a little unclear. The differences are not only word order; but, also a word here or there, maybe even a phrase. When it comes to something a half or a whole verse or several verses, there are only about 50 points of differences. Where I've read that, and how accurate a comment it is, I lack the knowledge to say.
It mostly seems the people of God tend to know only a big God and individual believers. That's where the consciousness of Media Christianity is. There's little or no experience of a many-membered Christ so it isn't even missed. The bride (or, Eclessia) is not thought of. Try to expose it and the reaction is apathetic.
Bring it up in what little discussion is allowed in "Sunday School Class" and, since it is other than what is done, two things happen. There is a rejection through false knowledge: "we already have that." There's no realization that they never plan to self-consciously meet waiting on the Lord to lead forth through any and every member present. The other thing is the messenger has challenged with another authority than tradition or whatever person is running things has supplied us with. Push a little and rejection of the messenger on the basis of "rebellion" ensues.
As long as people are trapped in men's tradition and bureaucratic Gentile authority it is unlikely they'll be allowed into the unity of the kingdom of God very much.
