UBS rating of Mt. 19:9 variant
Thu, 12 Sep 1996 20:46:37 -0400

Dear friends,

I'm still using the UBS text, 3rd edition, wherein Mt 19:9 is deemed to have
not originally included the phrase KAI hO APOLELUMENHN GAMHSAS MOICATAI (he
who has married her who has been put away commits adultery, w/ alternative
variants) . According to the critical apparatus, the committee gave the
reading, without this phrase, a "C" rating.

I don't want to start a thread on an issue of textual criticism which I
realize is outside the scope of this list. However, I wonder if someone could
simply tell me if perhaps the rating was upgraded to a "B" rating in the
fourth edition. (As you may discern, I'm doubting that the rating would have
been downgraded, or the reading changed - but I could be surprised, couldn't

Thanks much
Jeff Smelser
