Chapter Summary

This chapter outlines the textual relationship between mae2 and specific Greek manuscripts. It assesses mae2's correspondence with the Greek variants in select test passages. The assessment identifies mae2's allies, and allows their ranking according to their percentage of agreement. The chapter evaluates mae2's support for NA27, and compares their percentage of mutual agreement with other significant manuscripts. It compares an array of readings in mae2 with an array of manuscripts along with the critical edition NA27, and then ranks mae2's affiliation with them. Almost half of the viable test passages were taken from Text und Textwert's 64 Teststellen (Tst) for Matthew's Gospel. The editors identified these 64 passages as being especially important for assessing a manuscript's textual character. This feature distinguishes them from the other test passages, for the others were either determined indiscriminately or chosen with less discrimination.

Keywords: Greek manuscripts; mae2; Matthew's Gospel; test passages
