We are doing a series in our Sunday school classes at church on the Scriptures, which brought up topics, such as inerrancy. Typically, a lot of these matters come up when it comes to archeological, scientific, historic accuracy, etc..., where Scripture is remarkable. I was speaking with someone, who told me that as far as they knew the Russian Orthodox Church does not hold to Biblical inerrancy. What is the Coptic Orthodox view on Biblical inerrancy?

The response that best illustrates the view of the Coptic Orthodox Church regarding Biblical inerrancy can be found in 2 Timothy 3:14-17. While different translations of Biblical texts may have more or less accurate connotations, in-depth studies in the early Biblical texts and manuscripts help to provide the intended meaning revealed in other supporting Scripture. Thus, all the Holy Scripture is accurate and inspired by the Holy Spirit. It is only linguistics that are occasionally debated.
