Why is it called the Texus Receptus (recieved text)?

    Askjo said "...50 times BEFORE he was a martyr."

    Well, it would be pretty hard to do much AFTER he was a martyr. ;)

    Well, it wouldn't have been exactly the TR he used, but it might have been manuscripts similar to those on which the TR is based. Can you give an example or two of where Polycarp quotes from sources that disagree with the Alexandrian text family and follow the texts that the KJV is based on? </font>[/QUOTE]Polycarp quoted, "the Judgment seat of Christ" The Alexandrian texts changed from "Christ" to "God" in 200 years later.

    Comrade asked:

    Why?

    Because in 1633, when the Elsevir published an edition of the Greek New Testament, the preface (written in Latin) included the phrase: Textum ergo habes, nunc ab omnibus receptum which, being interpreted means, "Now the reader has the text received by all." Of course, there was no proof at the time that it had been received by anyone.

    Only as far as the Alexandrien texts did as well. ALL manuscripts originally started from the same source...the authors. From there, they were sent around and about. The manuscripts that we have today are the ones that have been found at various locations, preserved through the efforts of copyists over the centuries.

    The "Received Text" did not exist until Erasmus compiled it from a few (less than twelve) manuscripts, along with the Latin Vulgate. So trying to say that it began with the apostles (other than the fact that ALL manuscripts originally did) is totally ridiculous.

    Until Erasmus put it together from various sources, the TR did not exist. Pure and simple.

    In Christ,
    Trotter

    The TR is another name for the Traditional Text since the apostolic times.

    And here is the above paragraph
    rewritten to NOT contain errors:

    --------------------------------------------------

    Ed, this is rude and uncalled for. You could clearly understand what he wrote. We are human and make many spelling errors, yourself included. You are slandering this person by your nitpicking and it is NOT NICE! Stop it please.

    Love in Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour,

    Proof 1. The KJV1611 edition side notes
    show that variant source documents were
    used. "Heb" shows a variant in the Old
    Testament Sources. "Gr" shows a
    variant in the New Testament Sources.

    --------------------------------------------------

    The churches took these out, as they were not needed and were only the opinions of men. They were the translators opinions of what they thought the Hebrew/Greek could also mean. Apparently the churches didn't think they were of any value, as they thankfully got rid of them, and as God saw to it they did. They are irrelevant and meaningless.

    Why do you not harp on the mv's for putting God's word in footnotes, instead of in the scriptures? This is what you should be pointing out, but you are too numbed down to the truth, to even be able to tell this has been done, and that it is not right.


    love in Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour,

    Michelle, you say someone is "rude and uncalled for"? Something about a pot and kettle comes to my mind. Michelle, you want to moderate others and tell them they are rude or that they should/should not post something? Find your own site. Don't dare to try it here.

    Askjo, when you say 40% of the NKJV is NOT the TR is 100% a vile and evil lie. It is not a mistake, not a misstatement, not an interpretation. It is simply untrue.

    I would ban you right now for such open lying. I am ashamed to have to treat you this way, brother, but such a falsehood MUST be refuted lest someone believe it.

    All - this thread STARTED with a "flame" and should have been shut immediately.

    The Textus Receptus is a name given to a blend of various Greek documents 20+ years AFTER the AV1611 was published.

    Most people recognize this and refer to the underlying Greek of the AV as the "MT" (Majority Text) rather than the TR to not seem so foolish.

    When I see another being rude to another, I will tell them and stick up for that other person whether you like it or not. Anytime someone is unkind to another, I will always point it out.

    Russell55: "Can you give an example or two of where Polycarp quotes from sources that disagree with the Alexandrian text family and follow the texts that the KJV is based on?"

    For everyone's information: here is the whole shebang -- *all* of Polycarp's quotations or allusions to the NT (from &lt;http://www.ntcanon.org/Polycarp.shtml&gt;).

    Few if any of these are from places where there is any real variation in the text, i.e. nearly all of them come from the 90% "common text" where there is no text-critical dispute. Askjo's example in point of the judgment seat of Christ is one of the few exceptions.

    And you Dr. Bob, nor anyone else but God is my boss. God would not desire me to stand by and not point out the unkind treatment of another. You are not the boss of when I can tell someone when they are being rude and unkind. As I said, I will ALWAYS point it out and stick up for the one that is being attacked unwarrantedly, and this also includes myself. I will defend others when it is warranted, REGARDLESS of what your own personal opinion of it is.

    Now you not only have power to snip scriptures from my post when you so deem it irrelevant, but now you are also telling me that I am not allowed to stand up for another? Baloney. I hope you enjoy your amazing god-like powers on these boards at the expense of many good christians being attacked wrongly and very unkind attitudes and treatment of them, to sit there and tell me that I have no right to say such and will be banned if I do.

    You are not allowed to ATTACK others Michelle in the syrupy pseudo-piety that is your trademark. We have all grown weary of your ATTACK and will watch carefully. Just pausing to give a shot across the bow.

    After posting vile attacks, then ending with the piety probably is the MOST disappointing thing about her "signature", c4k.

    Dr. Bob, go back and read what Ed did to the poster, and then tell me I was wrong. What he did was unecessary and unkind and attacking that poster. I did not attack Ed, I told Ed the truth of what he did, and publicly as he did it publicly to that person. If you don't like it...touph. I don't like many things done to me or said of me either, which has gotten way out of hand. But you just let it continue, because you do not like me. That is fine. But I will never stop defending others who have been treated unkindly, or in a rude manner. Ed should apologize for what he did. Yet your focus is upon my defense of that poster. Unbelievable. What perilous days we are surely living in, even in christianity.

    Ed was correcting factual errors, not spelling errors (indeed, Ed even left some of the spelling errors in his version). If you thought Ed was focusing on spelling, then apparently you did not read (or understand) what he wrote before attacking him.
