[tc-list] RE: the text of the gospels in 2nd c.
- I was wondering if anyone could point me to good secondary sources
concerning the nature of the text of the four gospels in the second century
CE. I need some general information about this, for a footnote in a work on
a related subject (the use of the term euaggelion in Ireneaus' _Against
Heresies_) and have just read conflicting assessments in two articles
collected in the volume _Gospel Traditions in the Second Century_, by
Koester (very fluid) and Wisse (rather fixed). However, I do not have enough
background in NT textual criticism to confidently assess their arguments. Is
there a general, scholarly consensus on this matter or is it argued? Or,
since there are no manuscripts extant from that century (except the very
tiny P54), is the issue discussed only in a purely speculative fashion?
Thank you in advance for your help.
