Has God Indeed Said?

The Preservation of the Text of the New Testament

About the Book

Jesus said "till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled".

How can we know which copy of the Greek texts contains the correct jots and tittles?
