      To a degree, politics. There is more at stake for Christian
      interpreters in the NT than there is in the "OT", so a greater degree of
      precision is necessary to prove something in the received text is an
      interpolation or not. Most Christians could jettison the Hebrew Bible
      and still maintain the tenets of their faith.
