 Majority Text

Thanks to Ron's (Philologos) recommendation of [url=http://www.bible-researcher.com]Bible-Researcher[/url] (which is an excellent site), I found some relevant online information concerning the Majority Text, an issue that keeps coming out in the forum these days.

 Re: Majority Text

Thanks Sam
Robinson is a professional 'Textual Critic' although his views are oftne attacked. It was Robinson I had in mind when I said that there were well regarded textual criticism scholars who held to the majority view.

Robinson would be the chief spokesman of this group. I am creating a pdf with hyperlinks for anyone who would like a copy.

Yes, that would probably place him in the minority according to the current scholarly literature. Obviously, it does not necessarily follow that a more prevailing or "up-to-date" view is always closer to the truth.

How close are the Majority Text and the modern critical text when compared with each other? 95%? 98%? Just by seeing such figures, I can see the providence of God in preserving the written revelation for his church! Praise him!

Tried to put a couple of pictures on here to show the AV/RV Interlinear but failed.
