Chapter Summary

The variants found in the Greek text of Acts have been selected for three reasons. They all contain readings which have the combined support of the Byzantine majority text and papyri. They have a bearing on the study of Acts. They show differing types of scribal emendation. Hom can be demonstrated to have operated; a useful and basic rule of thumb is that the longer reading is likely to be original-other things being equal. With theological and other terms, such as the grace of God, the word of God, one may assume that an authors practice would attain fixity of usage. An issue wider than that of one Biblical authors style and usage is the usage of the New Testament as a whole. One aspect of this wider question concerns v.ll. in which one reading seems to support an Attic word or phrase and another reading supports a Koine equivalent.
