plans for the 2nd edition of a book describing the debate over this verse:

"in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost,
and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness in earth"

Advocates of 1 John 5:7||news release||first occurrences||Charles Butler||Joh. Heinrich Majus

Since 1901 versions of the Bible in America began to omit 1 John 5:7. From 1900 to 1994 nearly all discussions in English on this verse yield only shallow treatment in a paragraph or a footnote, if not a page or two of comments. In contrast, this book is the first attempt in any language and of any century to provide a detailed history of the debate over this verse. "Maynard concludes that many of the arguments against the disputed text are defective, and that only fourteen Greek manuscripts from the first eight centuries omit 1 Jn 5:7-8." New Testament Abstracts, vol. 43, no. 3, 1999. See reviews excerpts See corrigendum

not yet in print, but forthcoming [quantity orders: 480-968-3865]

When the book becomes available, you may order either from or from Barnes & Noble or directly from the publisher. price is not yet set:
