Scripture and the Preservation of Jesus' Words

Jesus made the astounding claim, recorded in all three Synoptic Gospels, that heaven and earth would pass away, but that his words would not pass away (Matt 24:35/Mark 13:31/Luke 21:33).  It is fair to say at this late date, that the only words of Jesus which have not passed away are those that were written down!
