Is the Holy Spirit communicating to our post modern culture by arranging the manuscript evidence? I think so!
The oldest verified fragment of the New Testament is the John Ryland manuscript, dated at 100-135 AD. Quite curiously, it contains the famous discourse by Jesus and Pontius Pilate form John 18:37-38, “Then Pilate said to him, “So you are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. For this purpose I was born and for this purpose I have come into the world— to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.” Pilate said to him, “What is truth?”
Our culture asks, “does truth even exist?” Of course it does! The Bible claims to be the objective Word of God. Whether man understands it or not, whether he recognizes it or not, and whether he applies it to his life or not, it is still the Word of God. If you are an honest truth seeker I suggest that you set your presuppositions to the side. God reveals truth through the Bible.
Are there many ways to God?
“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.” (Mt 7:13-14)
Yes indeed we are narrow-minded as Christians when we say that Christ is the only way to God, but is not a matter of mere preference. We are as narrow as the Lord Jesus Christ. So while it would be nice for us to equivocate in order to win friends and influence people — Jesus has not left that option open to us.
