So, I was wondering what everyone here thinks about modern, biblical textual criticism. Like it or do you prefer the good ol' Textus Receptus?
The Textus Receptus is clearly a flawed document. It was only based on seven manuscripts of the New Testament.
The NA28 isn't perfect, they still haven't collated many manuscripts, but at least they are trying, and at least they have incorporated over 5,100 manuscripts in their considering the "original" Greek New Testament.
That being said, I use the TR when I read the New Testament on occasion. I even own a copy. Although, I do tend to avoid it more than others when I am reading a digital NT.
Oh, you meant whether the critical editions from Deutsche Bibelgesellschaft are preferable to, say, the Greek Patriarchal Text of 1914? I'd go with the first for in depth study and the second for liturgical/devotional use.
Yeah, I think for deep textual-historical stuff, the NA28 will definitely be of use. But if I just want a read, then it doesn't really matter which text I use, frankly.
