Besides, Byz/TR *readings* are found in P66. In fact, almost all of the
Byz readings in that MS is *also* TR-readings! Think of it! :-)

(Is my TC-memory failing me, or is "singular reading" an expression used
to indicate a reading not found in *any* (other) Greek
manuscript?) The TR is nothing more than a complete NT MSS in PRINTED
form! But I do not trust in only one TR edition but in a variety of TR's
and other evidences besides these, as found in the text of the TBS 1976
edition of the "TR". In turn, this is to trust in the decisions of the
many competent scholars who produced the TEXT of the KJV!! I shall say
nothing of my belief in providential preservation..... :-)

No person discussing the text of the NT on a *TC-list* should be afraid
of discussing the Byz/TR text since this text/these texts represent the
MAJORITY of the available MSS! What kind of "TC" list would *that* be?
BTW, I do not think that you are "afraid", though! :-)
