So how does one reconcile the fact of textual updating to the belief of inspiration and inerrancy?
There are two views on this:
1. Non-inspired Textual Updating (traditional view):
Authored by Moses, the original copy (autographa) of the Pentateuch was inspired and any later
additions, while still true and correct, were not inspired.
These geographical, historical, or linguistic updates are considered as secondary textual variants
of the original inspired autographa.
2. Inspired Textual Updating:
Authored by Moses, the original copy (autographa) of the Pentateuch was inspired, but was in its
preliminary canonical form.
Later geographical, historical, or linguistic updates were inspired and were just as true
and correct as the original inspired text until the inscripturation process and canon were completed.
