The consonantal precursor of MT was often not given a name, and instead the term “textus receptus” was used. Thus Claudius Cappellanus (1667), Erhard Andreas Frommann (1761), Theodor Noldeke (1868), and Abraham Kuenen (1873) believed that the existence of this “textus receptus” in the first centuries CE can be
proven from Scripture quotations in the New Testament and in rabbinic literature.2 In an insightful analysis, Justus Olshausen (1853) is aware that there were ancient Hebrew texts similar to the medieval MT in the first century CE.3
