"The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make ye ready the way of the Lord, Make his paths straight"

And Metzger commentary: " "

And NIGTC commentary: " "

JW: Thank God for Bart Ehranncyman who alerts me to this one and forces me to Edit my own Editing thread (I Am as bad as Eusebius!). Bezae and early Latin witness have added "God" to the end of the phrase, "make straight the paths of our God". Since John the Baptist is indicated to be the Speaker Jesus is indicated to be the Lord. Adding "God" at the end Implies/States that the Lord referred to (Jesus) is God. Ehrrancyman gives the Background/Setting here of "Orthodox" arguing around this time that Jesus was God and other Christian sects arguing that Jesus was not God such as the "Adoptionists" and "Separationists".

This helps Illustrate that there is far more Textual Variation than indicated by Standard Textual Critical Commentary and some of this concerns Significant Christian Doctrine. In:

The Orthodox Corruption Of Scripture


Ehranncyman introduces a Term I have never heard before, "Methodology", to give Weight to his Textual Variation observations. If Motivation and Provenance (Location) can be established than additional weight can be given to the Direction of Textual Change (What was Likely Original). In the Book Ehranncyman limits the Context of Textual Change to known Controversy between "Orthodox" and Non-Orthodox Christianity in the early centuries before Important Christian Doctrine was Defined and Fixed. The entire book than is a Testament that Christian Bible Textual Variation affects Significant Christian Doctrine.

In the Process Ehrrancyman Identifies Some of the basic questions concerning any Type of Evidence:

Who: "Orthodox Christianity" as a Group. A Few Individual Fathers Identified.

What: Important Doctrine. The above illustrates the Doctrine of Jesus being God.

Where: Undetermined.

When: The early centuries. During and relatively shortly after the related controversies.

Why: To support Orthodox views.

How: Citation and Preservation of supporting manuscripts as a Group. Undetermined at individual manuscript level.
