Local News Covers Daniel Wallace’s Manuscript Find

I was an intern for Dr. Daniel Wallace as a master’s student, and he also supervised my master’s thesis. So I am always excited to see his work receiving some attention. In recent years, he has been focused on his task as the director of the Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts. Last summer, his group uncovered a treasure trove of 47 ancient Greek manuscripts of the New Testament. Last night, the local ABC affiliate did a brief story. Here it is:

“Frisco man leads quest for Biblical truth” – WFAA.com

I thought it was funny that the reporter referred to Dr. Wallace with the non-descript “Frisco man” and with “modern day Indiana Jones.” There are several other layman’s slips, but it is an otherwise good report.

    Titled “Is what we have now what they wrote then?”

    I enjoyed it very much.

    Oh, or the DTS website (I just didn’t happen to hear any of those).

    Sorry for the lack of consolidation.
