comment What is a Horizon of Understanding and how can it be applied to understanding the Bible?

comment Is John 7:53-8:11 original to John's gospel?
@Soldernal, you might find this article interesting. It doesn't really talk in depth about the acceptance of the text, but you might find it interesting.

After researching this a bit, it's pretty obvious that it wasn't in the original text. Wikipedia has a list of manuscript evidence.

Exactly the same... I'll include the Matthew text to illustrate that.
