8442[tc-list] Re: Swanson's Galatians and NA
- Apr 11, 2000Is Swanson's error list of the NA/UBS products from his edition of Gal
electronically available? I don't have the copy here at hand and would prefer to
see the data on my own before publicly interacting.
BTW-- I hope Swanson's new lists contain fewer items that are "MISLEADING AND
INCORRECT" when compared to his lists in the Acts-volume. Just to mention the
most stupid ones: His list of errors from UBS4 actually refers to UBS3. Swanson
gives readings from H (014) in his error list of NA27, but the manuscript is not
found in the NA witness list for Acts. Moreover, H (014) is supplemented at Acts
1,1-5,28 by a 15./16. cent. hand, yet Swanson makes no distinction.

from NA/UBS products in his Acts-volume? Have you double-checked his lists?
What error rate in Swanson's lists would you tolerate? If I would judge
Swanson's work by the UBS4 error list in Acts, I could conclude that he missed
almost 100%. Please, note I'm not saying Swanson didn't spot errors in NA. He
simply exagerated his case to an extent that is hardly justifying to use his
work as a model of scrutinity and reliability.
