The grounds for accepting the New Testament as trustworthy compare very favorably with the grounds on which classical (Greek, Roman) scholars accept the authenticity and credibility of reliable ancient documents.
F. F. Bruce (1912), Distinguished English academic classics scholar, University of Manchester

Example: Julius Caesars Gallic Warsnine or 10 existing manuscripts. The oldest dates from 850 A.D.

However, there are 4,000 extant Greek manuscripts of the New Testament, in whole or in part. The best complete documents go back to 350 A. D. Parts of Johns Gospel are dated at 130 A. D.

To express skepticism concerning the resultant text of the New Testament books...is to allow all of classical antiquity to slip into obscurity, for no documents of the ancient period are as wellattested bibliographically as is the New Testament. John Warwick Montgomery
