comment Which Greek NT passage has proven to have the most variant readings?
also, i'm not sure i follow how sheer quantity of variants can help one ascertain the original text. you try to explain yourself in the context section, but i'm not quite sure i follow how you feel like the number of variants (no matter how insignificant) can help in this process.

comment Which Greek NT passage has proven to have the most variant readings?
not sure that the amount of information you're requesting would even be comprehensible. there'd be a lot of noise to filter which is why the apparatuses to na28,ubs5, sblgnt are so helpful - they get to the ones that seem to have the highest s/n ratio. if you're really interested in getting everything, perhaps reach out to dr. dan wallace at cnstm

comment Was the text of Matthew 28:19 changed?
"however my question is whether or not there is any historical and textual evidence that the particular text of Matthew 28:19 appeared later?" it seems that this has been answered. if it's not the answer you're seeking, then you're asking a loaded question and are seeking theological interpretations of the text and are not holding true to the intent of your question. please feel free to accept frank's answer.

comment Why is the participle ὢν in John 9:25 translated into English as past tense?
a key point to consider here is that the participle ὤν precedes the main verb βλέπω, for which Funk appears to have no allowance. more recent scholarship (e.g. David Allen Black) has concluded (for now, at least), that a participle of any type the precedes the main verb of the clause will have action prior to that of the main verb.

comment How can the translation of δοξης as “glory” in Romans 3:23 be justified?
perseus was neat back in the day. it'd be nice if they could refresh with some more ... useful technology and mss. nonetheless, it seems that this question simply boils down to "why did they translators choose 'glory' and not 'expectation'?" is that fair?

comment Romans 5:1 and peace with God
this is a fun and interesting question, but not eminently answerable in this format. we could find a wealth of opinions on this and not arrive at a definitive conclusion.

comment In Heb 6:4-6, what have those once enlightened “fallen away” from?
Additionally, I've found that weasel words such as "clearly" work against your intent. The purpose of the site is to inform and not persuade and these sorts of words are used to persuade in the absence of information. Finally, I understand the perspective that you're presenting, but I'd also appreciate academic interaction with other perspectives and more recent scholarship.
