Publisher's Description

The First Edition of the New Testament is a groundbreaking book that argues that the New Testament is not the product of a centuries-long process of development. Its history, David Trobisch finds, is the history of a book--an all Greek Christian bible--published as early as the second century C.E. and intended by its editors to be read as a whole. Trobisch claims that this bible achieved wide circulation and formed the basis of all surviving manuscripts of the New Testament.

Author Bio

David Trobisch is internationally recognized for his work on the letters of Paul, the formation of the Christian Bible, and Biblical manuscripts.

Editorial Reviews

"Dr. Trobisch has produced a thought-provoking and significant study that will surely challenge the traditional understanding of the formation of the canon...The First Edition of the New Testament could have relevance for years to come."--Faith & Mission
