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
2. Inspired Textual Updating:
Authored by Moses, the original copy (autographa) of the Pentateuch was inspired, but was in its preliminary canonical
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.
