Pickering's book of which Waltz wrote was a re-do of his Th.D.
dissertation under Zane Hodges at Dallas Theol. Sem.
Hodges (co-author with Arthur Farstad of The Greek New Testament
According to the Majority Text) used the "expertise" of his brother
(David M. Hodges, BS Mathematics, Wheaton College, 1957) who I
believe was in the Army as a statistician at the time for the
mathematical probability chart you refer to. You may have seen
something similar in one of Hodges articles in the late seventies in
JETS. Specifically I know he had articles in Vols. 21:1 & 2 in
1978. He was thoroughly critiqued by Gordon D. Fee at the time. As
Waltz mentioned, the material was then used by Pickering in Appendix C
of his book.
