Are Books Missing from the Bible?

1. Jesus never accused anyone, nor did He ever predict that the Bible would be corrupted. In fact, He promised just the opposite (Matthew 24:35; 1 Peter 1:23-25).

2. If books had been removed from the Old Testament, why didn't Jesus correct the translation He used when upon the face of the earth? Rather, He viewed the translation then in existence as the inspired word of God (Matthew 5:17-18).

3. The Dead Sea Scrolls prove that the text of the Old Testament hasn't been corrupted.

4. The New Testament is backed up by more manuscript evidence than any other book of antiquity. If we can't trust the textual accuracy of the New Testament, then we can trust the text of any ancient document, including the writings of Shakespeare or the Declaration of Independence.

5. Since man cannot know spiritual truth by intuition (Isaiah 55:8-9; Proverbs 16:25; 1 Corinthians 2:9-13). All would stand helpless before a corrupted Bible, being unable to distinguish between what part had been corrupted and what hadn't. If our only link with God has been hopelessly tainted, then we are all doomed to fail.
