Debate on PA Coming (5.19.20)
God willing, I'm planning to take part this evening in an online debate with Stephen Boyce a staff "apologist" at City Light Church in Seattle on the "Talking Christianity" podcast at 9 pm EST (8 pm CST).
The topic: “Is the PA an authentic part of John's Gospel? The PA should be rejected on external, internal, and historical grounds."
The PA refers to the Pericope Adulterae or woman taken in adultery passage in John 7:53--8:11, one of two major textual issues in the NT (the other being the ending of Mark).
My opponent will be arguing that the PA is spurious and should be removed from our Bibles. I will be defending the PA as Scripture.
