Chapter Summary

There are a number of variants which it is impossible to put into one clear-cut category. At some point along the textual line changes of various kinds have evidently taken place in the text, but whether within the course of Hebrew or Greek transmission it is now hard to determine. The first volume of the book The Greek Chronicles reports a landing on the broken coastline of the extant Greek manuscript tradition, and forays into the hinterland of translation technique which lies behind the mountainous terrain of recensional activity. On the other side of the island lies the level shore of the Masoretic Text, but many a path has to be hacked through the jungles of Greek and Hebrew corruption before contact with it may be made.

Keywords: Greek manuscript tradition; Hebrew corruption; Masoretic Text; The Greek Chronicles
