A forum for people with knowledge of the Bible in its original languages to discuss its manuscripts and textual history from the perspective of historic evangelical theology.
procrastinating? I'd like to suggest likely scribal error behind that character sequence: harmonization to near context in the lexicon.
So if Paul dictated Romans to Tertius this might explain the Rom 5:1 ο/ω conundrum and who knows what else? Perhaps some articles or particles also went missing during the dictation/transcription process? And then what should constitute the "autograph" -- what Paul actually said,or what Tertius wrote? Pandora's can of worms, it seems.
Dr. Robinson, I try to answer that question in the article,"What are the NT Autographs? An Examination of the Doctrine of Inspiration and Inerrancy in Light of Greco-Roman Publication." JETS 59/2 (June 2016): 287-308.
