Chapter Summary

It is to Acts that one devotes a major section of this chapter for two obvious reasons. It is the book where D text-type is at its most distinctive, so if they discover any places where an early manuscript shares with D that distinctiveness this would be telling. Secondly, the most recent volumes in the Text und Textwert series are devoted to Acts. There are 104 Teststellen in the Acts sample. The selection of Teststellen identifies 31 singular readings by D confirming Aland's observation in the volume that D is "völlig isoliert". D seems not to have been the representative of a type of text that gained or maintained influence in the Greek church. D is a milestone along the path of the New Testament textual tradition. Its place in the history of the text is recognised in the history of Mark's Gospel currently being compiled by C.-B.
