    2 Kgs 5:5 says that Jotham acted as regent for his father, the king. This was not his official reign as king, but he did act with the authority of the king. So when the events in 5:30 take place,...

    I do not believe I said which came first, the Scripture or the liturgy. I think there are some interesting arguments showing how parts of Scripture were developed in their unique form prior to being...

    I think it is incorrect to say that there is no liturgy in the New Testament, and although it isn't necessarily within the narratives of individual baptisms it would be wrong to assume that no...

    One clarification. The ESV has used the critical text which uses all manuscript evidence and not just the Alexandrian witnesses. Each textual variant is considered in itself from all the evidence...

    I wish to take issue with much of your terminology. First, nobody uses the term "Minority Text." Text critics will often refer to the different text types, of which the current model finds are the...

    Why do you seem to conclude with the possibility that it is God who has kept the Church in the dark? This expresses an intentionality which is unfounded and illogical. Can it not be that humans,...

    I am sorry to point out that Catholic theologians have rejected Wright's demonstrated soteriology as not being totally in accord with their own. The problem being is that you've not fully stated...

    Could you please cite one witnesses that expresses that specific definition of "eclecticism"? What it sounds like is a different category altogether, that of ascertaining text types or families. In...

    I am sorry, but the eclectic nature just refers to using several different manuscripts and making decisions upon variations within those texts. The Greek texts used used in the Authorized Version...

    I first must suggest, with humble encouragement I assure you, that you try to be more clear in your words? I believe what you mean to say is that you take issue with a translation of an eclectic text...

    I think you're overstating the position of belief in this case. After all, who among us believes in anything despite evidence? Our belief, I dare say, originates because of all the evidence before...

    It is also illogical to rely upon supernatural explanations that defy all evidence to the contrary to insist upon a theologically motivated conclusion.

    What a completely debased, and useless comment. Can we not demand as users and posters that such unChristian attitudes not be presented?

    I don't. I take into account both external and internal evidence, and critically weigh each to determine the original text. But that being said, it is illogical to assume that older is not as...

    The better question would be "Are these examples of changes in the KJV, which the modern Bibles attempt to correct to correspond to the original autographic text, just accidents?"
