Would you be willing to share a few examples of these errors? Are the
discrepancies linguistic/textual in nature, or are they theological?
I'm aware that you possibly don't share the theological views of Comfort,
but it would be enlightening for us members of B-Greek to know if Comfort's
book is not a reliable volume in terms of its coverage of Biblical Greek
or textual issues (realizing you were only given the Intro, of course).
