Not quite. It is the _text_ of NA and UBS that are almost
identical. The critical apparatuses are quite different.
I keep my UBS4 around for three reasons:
1) the typeface is _so_ much more pleasant to read
2) the patristic citations are more complete
3) it has a punctuation apparatus.
But to try to understand the history of the variants of any
passage I use the NA's apparatus. Even that is incomplete
and has been accused (not without some justification) of a
strong "Alexandrian" bias.
Waiting for the blessed hope and the appearance of the glory of our
great God and Saviour Jesus Christ (Ti 2:13).
