Since we do not have the original manuscripts, some will consider this definition
However, we know what the original manuscript comprises 99% of the Bible.
In many of the verses where there are textual variants, the correct reading is clear.
There are very few places where the textual variant is both difficult to evaluate and
significant in determining the meaning.
In the small percentage of cases where there is significant uncertainty about what the
original text said, the general sense of the sentence is usually quite clear from the context.
The study of textual variants have brought us extremely close to the content of the original
Thus when we say that the original documents are inerrant, we are implying that over 99% of the words
in our present manuscripts are also inerrant. Furthermore we know exactly where the uncertain readings are.
