The First Edition of the New Testament Summary


The First Edition of the New Testament by David Trobisch (Throckmorton-Hayes Professor of New Testament Language and Literature, Throckmorton-Hayes Professor of New Testament Language and Literature, Bangor Theological Seminary)

The First Edition of the New Testament is a groundbreaking book that argues that the New Testament is not the product of a centuries-long process of development. Its history, David Trobisch contends, is the history of a book-an all Greek Christian bible-published as early as the second century C.E. and intended by its editors to be read as a whole. Trobisch claims that this bible achieved wide circulation and formed the basis of all surviving manuscripts of the New Testament.
