Episode 241: Why are some verses not recorded in some versions of the Bible?

Episode 241

Episode highlights:

  • Chapter and verse divisions are not original to the biblical text.
  • The verse divisions are tied to a Greek edition (Textus Receptus) that is based upon relatively few, relatively late manuscripts.
  • Our modern translations are based upon many more manuscripts, some dating to the 2nd century AD.
  • These better manuscripts indicate that some verses of the Textus Receptus are not original.
