Modern Textual Criticism and Acts 8:37 with Dr. James White
A response to Dr. White’s video “More King James Only Misrepresentation,” in which he offered a review of my presentation of his book and the NIV textual footnote on Acts chapter 8 verse 37.
Also, the Byzantine text he shows is simply the Robinson/Peirpoint Majority text. It is not a text anybody ever used in any church anywhere; it is a contrived text form that just shows “majority” Greek mss. readings. He brings it into the display as if it adds something to the discussion, but, it has already been accepted that Acts 8.37 is a minority Greek mss. reading. It’s just more flash and no substance. I didn’t want to get too bogged down responding to every little detail but that one probably should have had more discussion because people are asking about it. There actually are Byzantine texts that contain the verse.
