Uncials

Uncials testify to the Authenticity of the New Testament

By “uncial” we mean the text uses all capital letters, no spacing between words and no punctuation marks. Such conventions (spacing, punctuation, and lower case letters) are a relatively recent phenomenon in writing history. These have been found written on two types of media: parchment (sheep skin) and velom (calf skin).

267 Uncial documents containing portions of the New Testament have been found to date. This class of manuscripts dates to within a few hundred years of Christ.

When comparing Uncial texts with the rest of the documents that serve as the basis for Bible translations today, they are virtually identical!
