I started this list off of searching a bunch of last names that Dr. Robinson wrote in a response to a blog post. The point is people who “paved the way” for the Byzantine Text, as opposed to the Textus Receptus. Any help in expanding and clarifying this list is greatly appreciated.
1794-1852 – Johann Martin Augustin Scholz
1813-1891 – Frederick Henry Ambrose Scrivener
1886 – Edward Miller – A Guide to the Textual Criticism of the New Testament
1893 – Rev. S. W. Whitney – The Revisers’ Greek Text Volume 1 & Volume 2
2005-2018 – Dr. Maurice Robinson
As someone who has become convinced that to even attempt mastery of any period of the Greek language, one must also study the period before and after, I have been following the recent discussion on the internet about Koine Greek closely. I obviously do not agree with any of the one articles totally, but at least there is a dialogue happening.
For the above reason, I figured I would post the links here, just in case any current readers are unaware of them, and for future readers to check them out. To elaborate on what I wrote above, I’m convinced that the best path of Greek study for Orthodox Christians is found below, and using the pronunciation that Greeks use—since it is their language and all (imagine if Western scholars told Native Americans how to pronounce Cree?).
