1. Does a definitive study exist to show what greek text comes closest to
that used by the Christian aostolic/founding fathers?
This debate has gone on for over 100 years. I am a layman with an
interest in the subject, and no greek training.
There appears to be at least two positions. I would assume that John
W. Burgon/S. Franklin Logsdon(NASB) could represent the camp that holds
the TR to be the best critical greek text, while Bruce Metzger/F.F.
Bruce would support the N-A/UBS to be the best. How is a layman to know?
