Along with the excitement of hitting the road again to examine and preserve Greek New Testament manuscripts, we were thrilled to put our upgraded equipment and standards to the test. While travel restrictions kept us close toContinue reading An Inside Look at CSNTM’s Technology
After six weeks “across the pond,” the CSNTM team returned home with images of more than two dozen Greek New Testament manuscripts and news of a successful expedition.
