Strength to Strength welcomes Adam Boyd to explore the different manuscript families of the Greek New Testament and to present the case for why the text preserved in the vast majorities of manuscripts is to be preferred.
It is apparent that something is amiss. In Matthew 6:13 the King James Version concludes the Lord’s prayer with the words, “For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.” However, most modern English translations like the ESV and NIV exclude these words from the Lord’s prayer. Why do some translations include these words while others do not?
Which is right, and why does it matter? Join Adam as he addresses these and other related questions about the text of the Greek New Testament.
An interactive question-and-answer period will follow.
Adam Boyd lives in Papua New Guinea with his wife Martha and their three children. Adam has been serving as a Bible translator advisor with the Enga people since 2012, working with Wycliffe Bible Translators. Adam earned his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Georgetown University and his Master of Divinity from Fuller Seminary. He is an ordained minister with the Assemblies of God. In 2016 he began learning about Kingdom Christianity and the teachings of the early church. Since that time he and his family have been going through the long process of learning how to apply those teachings and adapt their lives accordingly.
