I was surfing thru this site concerning Greek Texts and I was wondering for those in the know about stuff like this. My question is wasn't the Texus Receptus the Critical Text of its day? I mean didn't Erasmus gather all the known MSS togather and compile one "critical text" from all know sources (even back translated some from the Latin) and later it was called the Recieved Text? Furtermore doesn't todays Critical Text (N/A 27t edition) have the TR absorbed in it? I ask since a critical text method starts with ALL known MSS copies (TR included) and goes from there to compile the most accurate Greek text from ALL know sources? I wonder since Erasmus really had so little MSS sources and today they are ober 5,000 different MSS, I know some are not much, but we have so many more MSS, so wouldn't today's compiled critical text be more accurate to translate a Bible from?? Yes / No and why. Just trying to learn here and I must say for the most part this is an awesome site becuase it has caused me to study and read more than ever. I know there are some stink mouths, but most responses have be insightful and thought provoking.
