Here are the comments of respected Bible Scholars about the debate between Mr. Duane and the Iglesia ni Cristo. Books of bible scholars are also used by INC ministers in their debates and programs.
“They simple opted for the other reading. He did not answer your question about early manuscripts.”
Dr. Darrell Bock
Author of Interpreting The New Testament Text
“I’m glad it was successful. It is pointless to use modern translations “to argue against Hebrew or Greek originals. The decisive wording and base of interpretation is the Hebrew or Greek originals. Modern translations are just good (but not perfect) attempts to make the meaning clear.”
Dr. Eugene Ulrich
Author of The Dead Sea Scrolls and the Origins of the Bible
“It sounds to me that you were way over-prepared and he was way under-prepared. It’s always best to do it the way you have, Duane. I’m very proud of you and am grateful to know you.”
Dr. Daniel Wallace
Author of Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics
“Duane: I’m very glad to hear the debate went well. It sounds like your arguments were sound and your opponent was unable to refute them. Please keep up the excellent work.”
Dr. Andreas Kostenberger
Author of Going Deeper with New Testament Greek: An Intermediate Study of the Grammar and Syntax of the New Testament
These scholars are experts who read and understand original text of the bible. They have more credibility that those who claim they studied biblical languages but they were taught a different version by their Professors. We must believe them instead of who say they understand the bible but use the wrong translation and do not understand the right grammar and syntax of the New Testament text.
