There are around 6000 ancient New Testament manuscripts or fragments dating from as early as 120AD that still exist today. Although we have manuscripts in the original Koine Greek there are also many in various languages that were spread across three continents of the ancient world. As a comparison there are less than a dozen manuscripts of Aristotle’s Poetics and the earliest one is from 1000 years after he wrote.Julius Caesar’s Gallic Wars have less than a dozen ancient manuscripts from 1000 years after his life. Homer’s Iliad has about 2000 manuscripts and none closer than 2000 years to the original. These trusted ancient secular documents have nowhere near as many as the New Testament’s 6000 manuscripts. Due to the sheer number of manuscripts that survived, we can be extremely confident that the scripture we have today is very close to the original manuscripts.
