Of interest to the readers of Parchment & Pen: Christianity Today this week (April 23, 2008) published its article on the Greek New Testament manuscripts that the Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts (www.csntm.org) discovered in Albania last summer. It appeared both as a full-length interview in the on-line version of CT and a shorter treatment in the print version for May 2008. In addition, the on-line CT had a sidebar discussing the story of the woman caught in adultery (John 7:53-8:11). For this article, the reporter interviewed a few scholars (including Ben Witherington, Craig Evans, Mike Holmes, and Doug Moo) about the authenticity of the pericope and, if inauthentic, how they viewed the story. This article was included because several of the newly discovered manuscripts in Albania either lacked the story or placed it at the end of John. Interesting perspectives on whether it should be treated as scripture and whether it was historical.
