Original Text, Initial Text, or What?

Meet the lovely staff at Clearview Church in Henderson, NC. 

Today I did an interview with them about their upcoming apologetics conference. Abidan (left) is my former assistant and recently completed a Ph.D. in New Testament textual criticism. The focus of the conference will be on the use of the term "original" as in "original text." Other terms are being bandied about, including initial text, autographic text, authorial text, primordial text, Urtext, and Ausgangstext. All this and more was discussed in today's interview and I will post a link to it as soon as it's been published.
