Johann Gerhard on the authentic text of Scripture

§ 316 …

In De verbo Dei, bk. 2, c. 10, Bellarmine burdens us in this controversy with a double calumny: “(1) That we consider only Luther’s version authentic; (2) that we disagree not a little bith in choosing an authentic Latin version.” However, we claim the Latin or German version of neither Luther nor anyone else as authentic, but only the Hebrew text in the Old Testament and the Greek in the New.
