Graham G. Thomason


A superb new paper for 2019:

The Reading of Codex Alexandrinus in 1 Timothy 3:16
Verification of Dean Burgon's Evidence
Graham Thomason, 13th March, 2019

One tweak found so far.
This page from John Berriman gives the text from William Wotton (1666-1727), it was not a verbal reference from Berriman :) . Note, I have not put much effort into the Wotton primary source, and I do have a bit more in the paper to review. It really fills a big need, by enhancing the Berriman studies and also adding solid scholarship and analysis.

Θεος ἐφανερωθη ἐν σαρκι; or, a critical dissertation upon I Tim. iii. 16
John Berriman (Google error puts Granville Sharp too)

Mr. Wotton who publish’d the Epistles of Clemens Rom. in the Year 1718, declares it to be past all Doubt that it ever read Θ̅Ϲ̅ ,
i. e. θεός in this Place : as will appear, he says, to any one that accurately inspects it (c) ;


If you search "procul semper legebatur" you do find some more 1800s references.

Clearly, this could use a precise Latin-->English translation as well.
Note the reference to Junius, presumably:

Franciscus Junius (the younger)
