Daniel B. Wallace

“…two attitudes – radical skepticism and absolute certainty – must be avoided when we examine the New Testament text. We do not have now – in our critical Greek texts or any translations – exactly what the authors of the New Testament wrote. Even if we did, we would not know  it. There are many, many places in which the text of the New Testament is uncertain. But we also do not need to be overly skeptical.”
