As relatively new to this blog I would be interested to know how others here view the appropriateness of singular readings among GNT manuscripts for an eclectic NT text? (Forgive me if this is already discussed somewhere on the blog. I am not referring to using singular readings for understanding a manuscript's character.)
Does anone have a favorite example as a contender for an acceptable text?
Do any/most/all accept as a principle that a singular reading should not be followed in an NT eclectic text? This would imply, qal vaHomer, that emendations should not be accepted in an eclectic NT text.
(PS: I accept that a manuscript could include good, authentic information, e.g., Bezae, without implying that such was part of the author's original.)
So, as a curiousity, what do people on the blog think/do? Or how far are they willing to take a principle?
