The Ancient Hebrew Alphabet - Lesson 13 Go to Lesson #...Introduction Learn to Read Biblical Hebrew - Lesson 13 Hebrew Verbs By: Jeff A. Benner Learn Hebrew Verbs - Introduction Before learning the structure of Biblical Hebrew verbs we need to understand a few grammatical terms used to describe parts of a sentence. In the phrase "Jacob cut a tree" the verb is "cut." Hebrew verbs work much in the same manner.

In the following lessons we will explore these various forms of Hebrew verbs.

Textual variants in the New Testament - Wikipedia Textual variants in the New Testament are the subject of the study called textual criticism of the New Testament. Textual variants in manuscripts arise when a copyist makes deliberate or inadvertent alterations to a text that is being reproduced. Most of the variations are not significant and some common alterations include the deletion, rearrangement, repetition, or replacement of one or more words when the copyist's eye returns to a similar word in the wrong location of the original text. If their eye skips to an earlier word, they may create a repetition (error of dittography). If their eye skips to a later word, they may create an omission resort to performing a slight rearranging of words to retain the overall meaning without compromising the context. In other instances, the copyist may add text from memory from a similar or parallel text in another location. An abbreviated list of textual variants in the New Testament is given in this article (below). Legend Gospel of Matthew
Textual criticism of the New Testament - Wikipedia A folio from Papyrus 46, one of the oldest extant New Testament manuscripts The textual criticism of the New Testament is the analysis of the manuscripts of the New Testament, whose goals include identification of transcription errors, analysis of versions, and attempts to reconstruct the original. The New Testament has been preserved in more than 5,800 Greek manuscripts, 10,000 Latin manuscripts and 9,300 manuscripts in various other ancient languages including Syriac, Slavic, Ethiopic and Armenian. There are approximately 300,000 textual variants among the manuscripts, most of them being the changes of word order and other comparative trivialities. Nonetheless, these manuscripts are copies of copies of copies and maintain a 99.5% accuracy to each other. This fact is unprecedented in light of other ancient texts.

The Majority Text and the Original Text: Are They Identical? Editor's Note:1 In recent years a small but growing number of New Testament scholars have been promoting what appears to be a return to the Textus Receptus, the Greek text that stands behind the New Testament of the King James Version. But all is not what it appears. The reason for this resemblance, despite the uncritical way in which the TR was compiled, is easy to explain. But the TR is hardly identical with the majority text, for the TR has numerous places where it is supported by few or no Greek manuscripts. In a previous article3 the present writer interacted with the majority text theory as it has been displayed concretely in The Greek New Testament according to the Majority Text.4 For the most part the interaction was with Zane Hodges’s particular defense of the majority text view. Preservation and the Majority Text For many advocates of the majority text view, a peculiar form of the doctrine of the preservation of Scripture undergirds the entire approach. External Evidence

Greek New Testament - New Internet Edition With Critical Apparatus (Editio Internet Critica Maior) What about the Majority Text? by Michael D. Marlowe The "Majority Text" is a statistical construct that does not correspond exactly to any known manuscript. It is arrived at by comparing all known manuscripts with one another and deriving from them the readings that are more numerous than any others. There are two published Greek texts which purport to represent the Majority readings -- Hodges & Farstad 1982 and Pierpont & Robinson 1991. What is the Difference between the Majority Text and the Received Text? The "Received Text" is also not a single text. For a complete list of differences between the Robinson-Pierpont text (representing the majority of manuscripts) and the text underlying the King James Version, see the collation posted here. On another page on this website I have presented an elaborate statistical comparison of the various texts, showing their degrees of affinity. And so the Majority Text has a little less than a third as many differences from the Received text as do any of the critical texts. Dr.
