      Tommy,

      In the 1964 edition of Metzger's "The Text of the New Testament" (subtitled "Its Transmission, Corruption, and Restoration"), the following statement is found on p. 216, as the only sentence in a paragraph that begins on the 12th line on the page:

      "Though most scholars have abandoned Hort's optimistic view
      that codex Vaticanus (B) contains the original text almost un-
      changed except for slips of the pen, they are still inclined to
      regard the Alexandrian text as on the whole the best ancient
      recension and the one most nearly approximating the original."

      Yours in Christ,

      James Snapp, Jr.
