Re: [textualcriticism] Once more Mk 1:41
- Thanks Martin,
That is interesting. I'm sure that the principle is a good one: since
in this case so much hinges on Bezae's witness, then if the 'anger'
reading could be explained as due to a consistent Bezan tendency to
intensify emotional involvement, it would provide an explanation for
the origin of the reading. But I'm not too sure that the passages
you've given get us very far in proving the stated tendency. Further
study would be welcome on this.
