    The following are some extracts from Philip Comfort's commentary on the variant readings of the ancient New Testament manuscripts.

    1:1
    WH NU : grace to you and peace
    var/TR : grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ

    Comfort says that if the extra words had originally been in the text there would have been no logical reason why scribes would have deleted it. (p.641)

    2:15
    WH NU : the prophets
    var/TR : their own prophets

    "Marcion altered the reading...probably in an attempt to make the Jews even more culpable...Marcion's interpolation had its effect on the textual tradition,as is evidenced by the same interpolation being in several later witnesses and by finding its way into TR (and so into KJV and NKJV). (p.644)

    I'll leave you with just two to munch on.

    You know the drill. Here are some places where the TR agreed with the WH and NU when it comes to textual variants.

    3:13 : WH
    4:11 : NU
    5:4 : NU
