With 5500 Greek texts/fragments and four very different text types (Byzantine, Alexandrian, Caesarian, Western) and no two documents in agreement, what rules do we have for selecting the "best" text, most reflective of the original writing. Think it would be helpful to let English readers step into the minds of the Greek scholars and see the "rules" they chose. Debate and discussion is expected!!
