TWO NOTEABLE CORRUPTIONS OF SCRIPTURE BY SIR ISAAC NEWTON = A MUST READ!?
SIR ISAAC NEWTON (circa. 1642-1727 C.E.): “...Having given you an historical account of the corruption of two texts of scripture, I shall now mention some others more briefly. ffor the attempts to corrupt the scriptures have been very many, and; amongst many attempts tis no wonder if some have succeeded. I shall mention those that have not succeeded as well as those that have, because the first will be more easily allowed to be corruptions, and; by being convinced of those, you will cease to be averse from believing the last…” - (“Two Notable Corruptions of Scripture” [1st John 5:7 & 1st Timothy 3:16] The Third Letter (Part 4: ff. 70-83) by Isaac Newton. Source: Ms. 361(4), ff. 70-83, New College Library, Oxford.)
