comment What does μονογενὴς Θεὸς means in John 1:18?
But the reader should know that there can be no absolute certainty that μονογενὴς Θεὸς is the correct reading in John 1:18. The reader will then need to answer based on the assumption that it is the correct reading.

comment What is the significance of the phrase ὁ ὢν καὶ ὁ ἦν καὶ ὁ ἐρχόμενος in the Apocalypse?
But Rev. 1:11 is also a textual variant, with Ἐγώ ἐιμι τὸ Α καὶ τὸ Ω, Ὃ πρῶτος καὶ ὁ ἔσχατος being supported by hardly any witnesses. The majority omit it. As Heinrich Meyer notes, "The addition after λεγούσης, ʼεγώ εἰμι τὸ α καὶ τὸ ω, ὁ πρῶτος καὶ ὁ ἔσχατος καὶ (Elz.), is without attestation." And, I hate to admit it, but Rev. 22:13 is a bit ambiguous too as to who it is referring to by the phrase "the Alpha and the Omega."

Hmm...I'm not so sure Rev. 1:8 is referring to Jesus. It seems ambiguous, especially in light of the textual variant. I examined Tischendorf's apparatus and hardly any witnesses support the reading in the Textus Receptus. Nonetheless, most excellent answer.

I will be awarding a bounty of 500 for this question in two days, hopefully to encourage detailed and thorough answers.
