The Bible was written a very long time ago, and over the centuries the individual books that make it up have been hand copied hundreds of thousands of times. So what happens when the copies don’t precisely agree? How sure can we be what we’re reading now is an accurate rendering of what was written down in the first place? Dr. Dan Block specializes in this and was kind enough to sit down and talk me through the process of sorting out the challenging parts of working through the biblical manuscripts in the process of translating the Bible from the original languages to modern languages.
Matt Whitman believes in God and thinks things are funny. He was raised in Fort Collins, Colorado before moving to Chicago where he graduated from Trinity College and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He met his wife Camilla on his first day of college in his first class. They’ve got three kids together and now live in the mountains of beautiful western Wyoming where Matt works as the Senior Pastor of the Lander Evangelical Free Church. Matt’s a teach-straight-through-books-of-the-Bible kind of guy and uses his appreciation of history, humor, culture, and narrative to help people understand God’s Word. In addition to church and family, Matt throws a lot of time at filmmaking. He writes, acts, and directs and also hosts a YouTube program called The Ten Minute Bible Hour in which he teaches books of the Bible in a tight, informative, and funny format.
