Textus Receptus Gospel of John

I completed and uploaded my edition of the Gospel of John containing verse by verse alternation between the Textus Receptus Greek text of John and my English translation.  You can download that there, and also the whole Bible Textus Receptus edtion.  The Greek text I used was Scrivener’s 1894 TR edition.  I don’t see the point of translating Erasmus’ or Stephens’ editions since that would not line up with the King James Version (KJV), with which people are already very familiar.

There are not a great many differences between the Textus Receptus and the Robinson-Pierpont text of John’s gospel, but I noticed that when the TR does differ, it is often following the Western text, i.e., Codex D and Latin. I also noticed a variant reading in the TR for which I know of no Greek manuscript attesting to it (there may be one or two; I have not looked at all MSS.) And that variant is in John 20:29, “Because you have seen me, Thomas, you have believed.” That addition of the word Θωμᾶ, Thomas, is not attested in any of the Greek mss (as far as I know right now.)

Pericope of the Adulteress data updated

I have updated and uploaded the updates of all my documents that contain TC manuscript data for the Pericope of the Adulteress in the Gospel of John.  This includes the line by line Swanson-style chart of John 5:3b-4, and the Pericope.  I have changed the designations for some minuscules which recently were assigned Gregory-Aland numbers, including minuscule 2253, formerly only known as ANA 10, (a.k.a. Albania National Archive, Kod. Vl. 10), IX-XII century.  In addition, I have included in the critical apparatuses, the readings of the Byzantine Greek New Testament, which is essentially the reading of minuscule 35.

John 7:52

I just added a new footnote to my file, johnwgrk.pdf, in John 7:52 about εἶπαν vs. εἶπον.

No clear early text-type differentiation in this Greek manuscripts textual variant. εἶπον vs. εἶπαν Ionic vs. Attic dialect. Map of the geographic distribution of the ancient Greek dialects.

Share this post about this textual variant in John 7:52, the gospel of John.
