comment Did English-language translations describe Adam and Eve as eating apples?
As a side note, I notice that the tree of Song of Songs is called "apple" in most Bibles, except the NEB and the HCSB which render it "apricot". I would like to start spreading the falsehood that Adam and Eve ate an apricot.

comment Is verse 114 of the Gospel of Thomas a later addition?
Not that I am aware of. The other bit which can be confusing (well for me, anyway) is that there is a Coptic Gospel of the Egyptians (found at Nag Hammadi) which is nothing at all like the Greek gospel.

comment Acts 20:28 variants, what are the six variants?
I don't think it's better - it's just different. According to their website: "the selection of passages for the apparatus has undergone considerable revision. The evaluations of all sets of variants cited in the apparatus have been reconsidered."

comment Acts 20:28 variants, what are the six variants?
As a side note, I would be interested to know whether UBS4 has all of those readings. My understanding is that the critical apparatus underwent a considerable revision in the fourth edition.
