NOTR - The Hand of Heresy - 9.14.16


Chris discusses the Revision Committee of 1881 from the perspective of Dean John W. Burgon and one of his associates, a renowned minister named H.P. Liddon.  The Committee, led by Westcott and Hort chose to include in its company a Unitarian named Dr. Vance Smith.  His inclusion was considered a scandal that caused an uproar among believers in England.  Liddon wrote to Burgon that because of the influence of an unbeliever, they should "expect to trace the hand of heresy" in the passages of the 1881 revision of the English Bible.
